This Taste for Silence
Kali Napier's review
Jul 12, 2019
Read 2 times. Last read July 9, 2019 to July 12, 2019.
This is a beautiful collection of stories. Amanda O'Callaghan has an acute ear for dialogue, for the nuanced and idiomatic expressions, the throwaway lines of frustration, absurdity, and heartache that people bandy about everyday. Some stories are only a page long -- flash fiction -- but provide vignettes of the whole of a person's sorrow or broken life. Other stories, like my favourite 'The Painting', are more traditional length but contain the burdens of generations
