Review:
I quite liked this little collection of stories and I felt like it was a great little introduction to this author.

The writing style is quite particular and it took me a few pages to get used to, but I think I really like it. It has a dreamlike character to it a lot of the time that I really enjoy and it reminds me a little bit of Virginia Woolf, whom I adore.

I'm not sure if these stories will really stay with me, but the feeling of the collection definitely will, and it's piqued my interest in reading more of this authors work.
