“In this collection of raw, emotionally honest stories, MariNaomi explores a wide range of topics including youthful rebellion, mortality, disillusionment, and compassion. Many of these stories were first serialized on the popular site The Rumpus. These poignant stories, some filled with hope, others tinged with remorse, are sure to appeal to even the most discerning reader.”
This is one of those books that you read in one sitting and then feel guilty for reading it so quickly. It is clear that a lot of time and effort went into making this collection so perfect. Reading it in one sitting seems a bit sacrilegious.
The stories are really touching. Not a single story seems out of place.
There isn’t much I can say that I haven’t already said in a review of another one of MariNaomi’s books. I suggest just reading that and realizing that you need to read everything that MariNaomi has ever written.
5 out of 5 stars. I would highly recommend this book.
