Wow this collection of stories is just brilliant! Roseanne Rabinowitz has an incredible imagination, but a really down to earth style, giving the reader a sense of being in a truly strange world that is both kind of recognizable and totally wierdly different. What is real and what isn't? I come away from reading (and re-reading again and again) these stories encouraged to look at the world differently, to hold my attachment to pedantic disappointment in the world as it is more loosely. Roseanne's stories inspire me to remember that not only could the world be different - we could make it so! Thanks for waking me up! Totally recommending this to speculative fiction fans, and anyone who wants to live in a different, more creative world.
