Review:
It's been a while since I read a short story collection, but this reminds me how good they can be.

I loved the stories in this, and how they all have their different attributes. They don't flow into one another like some other short story collections do. I spaced out the stories a bit though and I think that's the best way to read this book.

There's something dark, yet lovely about this. It has a perfect amount of magical realism, and what I liked so much is that the stories feel grounded, not up in the air and sort of vague, like some whimsical stuff can feel sometimes.

Naturally, there were some stories I enjoyed more than others, but overall, a very good collection. I would definitely recommend it.
