I enjoyed this short story collection, with 'Pudding' and 'Mountains Grow Like Tress' being some of my stand out favourites. I love books which provide a glimpse of peoples everyday life and the way in which Elvery challenges readers on themes of gender based harrasment, violence, discrimination and power imbalance was, in my opinion, well done. However I found that as soon as I became invested, the vignette would end leaving me wanting more and wondering.... what happens next.
I think think this is more a case of me not gelling with the short story format.
