I got this book and Possession out from the library at the same time. Possession, it turned out, was a huge wash for me.

This book, on the other hand. This book is great.

The highpoint of the book is the title story, which starts out a tad slow but develops beautifully. There are certainly deeper themes, but they're not overwrought; it's about someone's story, their journey, not about the themes itself. The language is elegant and rich, the story here is highly compelling, and I was sad when I finished.
