Anita Pomerantz | 6543 comments I've been meaning to read this book ever since I fell in love with The Housekeeper and the Professor.

This book definitely didn't change my opinion of the author. She's a talent. These stories are very dark and eerie with a theme of "revenge" running through many of them. Each story is somehow linked to the rest, and I regretted that I didn't map the connections on a piece of paper.

Short stories have really captured my attention lately. I have always liked them, but never have made an effort to read collections. This book cemented the fact that I need to try harder. While I don't think it is quite as good as George Saunders' Tenth of December, I really found the simple, straightforward writing with a dark twist to be compelling.
