's review

it was amazing

Anything short of five stars seemed inadequate. Beautiful, reductive, minimalist, economical, haunting, compelling--these works of, essentially, micro fiction (some stories are a page or two in length) brim with feeling and pathos and probably should not be read from start to finish in a single sitting, as I couldn't help but do, but instead savored, bit by bit, while remembering to come up for air. Floored me.
