I'm wary of short story anthologies because my experience has often been of depressing, tedious stories that get caught up in poetic descriptions but don't really get going! But I loved this book from page one. The stories are each very different and instantly grab you. They are the perfect length to dip in and out. I felt energised after the first few pages. No wonder it won a prize in the National Association of Writers Groups! I highly recommend it.
