it was amazing
bookshelves: short-stories, favorites
Read in May, 2011 — I own a copy

I bought this book at a Borders sale, when everything was 60% off. It was there, sitting innocuously on a shelf, minding its own business, and I decided to buy it on a whim.

The stories in here are beautiful and varied. Some are short, some are long, some are funny, many are sad, all are thoughtful and thought-provoking. Each story has a unique and well-crafted narrator. They're wonderful to read aloud, to yourself, to your lover in bed. This collection of short stories and I were made for each other. I plan on reading Somerville's other works.

As an added bonus, the book actually turns into a mobile. Go figure.
