This collection contains short stories and flash fictions, and is the third collection of Sylvia's stories that I've read; I have to confess that I'm a fan! Sylvia draws you right in to the characters' exchanges and idiosyncrasies. Some are great fun and heartwarming, such as 'Stiletto Condoms' and 'Fences'; others resound beautifully, such as 'Tick-Tocking', 'Imagination' and 'Anna's Flags'. My favourites are 'Want of a Strong Man', and 'The Burka' where the interactions reveal human complexities for both its failings and endurance. Recommended.
