it was amazing

Such a marvellous blend of the mundane and the mystical, of the family and the stranger, of one family and the universe. The more you know about mythology and cosmology the more you recognise and adore in this collection of stories. And yet there is always that touch of sadness, that clear-eyed unflinching awareness that is somehow so much more true of childhood than any trite sentimentality.

A book to revisit. Sooooo glad I made my Aunt buy it for my birthday last year. Heh.
