Although technically short stories, these read as one series of interwoven chapters, each one linked to the one before. The writing is absolutely stunning, each story full of heartbreak, humour and humanity, as well as a strong sense of the history and place. I was not sure this would live up to my expectations after A Constellation of Vital Phenomena but it was every bit as beautiful as I had hoped.
