What I find most remarkable about the stories in “Birds of a Lesser Paradise” is how memorable they are. That, for me, is the hallmark of a very well-written short story. With each story, Bergman creates scenes and characters that are so vivid you feel that you’ve been immersed in a novel of several hundred pages. The themes running through the stories are nature and femininity, and the author explores complex moral issues in a way that is both quiet and thought-provoking. I was surprised and delighted by how much I adored this collection of stories; Bergman is definitely an author to watch.
