Review:
This was such a wonderful and magical experience to read.

The writing in this is excellent; it's lyrical and almost mystical and what I love the most about these stories is that they don't over explain things to you; you're left to discover and wonder at the layers of the stories. There are a few stories in here that I just had to reread because they were so good and they're stories I see myself revisiting again and again - and then there were some stories that didn't resonate with me as much.

There is a weirdness to this collection which makes me think it might not be for everyone, but if you're into slightly odd and different things, this will be perfect for you.
