Prouxl's writing is vivid and beautiful, in stark contrast to the story topics she tackles in this book. While I absolutely loved her writing – the words she chooses, the way in which she puts those words together – I found the characters to be hard to relate to, like, or engage with, and the plots difficult to get lost in.

I will admit, though, that I'm not easily enamored of the short story collection as a genre. Any one of these might be great on it's own, but for me it was too easy to put the book down and too hard to want to pick it back up.
