Review

...an author dripping with talent, this is as good as modern reading gets.--New Scientist Christmas Books Special: Best of 2008

This collection exemplifies everything that is best about the short story. With succinctness rarely seen in the work of someone new to fiction, Hershman extracts the very essence of a moment to reveal the poignant fragility of human relationships... each story is so different from the next that you will be tempted to read 'just one more', until you find you have read the whole book in one sitting. Hershman writes in a variety of style that are sometimes whimsical and playful, other times wry and edgy, so that you never tire of her narrative voice.--Dominique Wilson "Wet Ink "
