This collection of beautifully translated short stories is a must for any Marias aficionado. Each tale encapsulates the essence of his style showing what he develops in his longer stories, a precise use of language that enhances the suspense which keeps one hooked in to the narrative throughout.

Dark and witty stories, but a bit flashy and shallow for my taste. I like to care a little about the people I'm reading about. Or be taken somewhere more darkly, exotically, convincingly stranger (as with Michael Faber) - somehow these stories fall a bit too much between those two poles.

Really enjoyed this collection. Pure and clean prose, real and interesting characters and the pages came alive. Made me want to read one of his novels.
