5.0 out of 5 stars The Sand Eggs by Bryony Doran, 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sand Eggs (Paperback)
I found this to be a very accessible and beautifully written collection of short stories. Each piece is finely drawn and moves fluently through the experiences and feelings of the characters. The voices vary in age, though many are of a young woman's struggle with unknown ways, places and people. The stories are set in Britain and Turkey. A range of relationships is explored: newly-forming, established, temporary and unexpected. Themes include those of dislocation, intimacy, distance, leaving and loss.

I engaged very quickly with the new voices of each story and the strong visual/sensory nature of its context. At the end a feeling remained that there are several layers and directions of experience to absorb. This together with the lyrical language left me with the urge to read them all again.
