Again, Russell's prose is nothing short of magic. Yet all but one of the stories in this collection lack a sense of resolution. Which I suppose is interesting in its own right... But I am old now, less academic, and far more interested in literary stories which can also maintain a hint of plot. But I do love her quirk. And her sentences. Even if they are problematic in their whole.

I did love the title story.

I think you'd like it. In my comments I meant All but one of the stories lacks the feeling of resolution. It came out wrong and I am not sure how to edit :D
