Why has no-one yet reviewed these stories? They're such beautiful examples of the form at its best. Each is a sort of love story, with distinctive characters and situations, and each also spreads to encompass wider social and political issues. Summarising them would be pointless since they're so much more than the narratives around which they're built. I was mesmerised by them. I've read them three times and I know I'll read them again because they offer a different reading experience. The characters are still there to be enjoyed (or otherwise) and their actions and reactions still create a satisfying, developing narrative, but it's the prose itself, its rhythms and repetitions, its recurring and yet shifting images, its plasticity, the fact that it simultaneously invites and eludes - these are the effects that stayed with me. If this sounds pretentious, I'm sorry but it's how I felt as I read. They have a symphonic structure and use themes and variations whose impact is closer to that of music than prose (or even poetry). They redefine concepts such as love, nostalgia, hope. Five stars aren't enough.
