's review

it was ok
bookshelves: collections-anthologies

I enjoyed the first story, "The Faery Handbag", and then it went downhill from there. This "slipstream fiction" is simply not for me. It read like complete nonsense and I was too bored to want to try harder to understand it.

I'll keep reading stuff by her! Hoping this one was a fluke.
