Read in November, 2011

Beautiful writing-- lyrical and insightful. It took me a while to recognize the characters from the first story in the second -- I felt instantaneously stupid and enlightened. The power of this story is in the perfect coloring of each character. I also found the ending particularly satisfying.

As several other have mentioned-- the cover is off putting and is really a characture of the story within. The book definitely deserves a better cover!
