Prose that fizzes, sings, aches and exhilarates. Full of uncomfortable, challenging perspectives this collection is the opposite of relaxing but in story after story the succulent, voluptuous language keeps you hooked. Crammed with stories, imagination and visions. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this ... recommended by a friend!
It's a great book for drawing strength from. Well-rounded characters with hopes, passion and torments. It's incidental that we don't know how the characters got into each situation or how they moved on. But I take comfort from realising that other (albeit fictional) people have been (emotional) places I'd avoid and somehow saved me experiencing that - Allegory or lesson
I'd still like to know how they recovered, suffered or resolved ...
So a sequel. a catch-up maybe?

A compelling debut collection with a surprise on every page. Written in lyrical language with startling imagery the stories are wide ranging in both location and emotional terrain. Many of them - Bone on Bone and The Lightest Blue for example - will appeal to everyone but be prepared for the wild cards throughout the collection. Mad Angels is a shocking, haunting story that stays with the reader long after the book is closed.

Jai Clare's love of language, her joyful exploration of what language can do, is clear throughout this work. I'm forward to seeing what she does next.

5.0 out of 5 stars On the Cusp of Wonderful 12 Mar. 2008
By F. SharpJr - Published on Amazon.com
Jai Clare is a writer who manages to get to the heart of a story each and every time out. It's a gift. Her characters are us, and two things happen when you've finished one of her stories: your heart moves a little, and you realize she has just written something about you.
5.0 out of 5 stars Something Else 19 Mar. 2008
By C. Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Short stories that are beautiful, sad, erotic, lyrical, worldly, like a modern D.H. Lawrence or Paul Bowles. I can't put it down. Just one more!
