Holy cats, Gena reads all over the place.
Must be the years of library experience...
These stories are like a slight tilt of the head, propelled by a sense of something a bit sinister, unseeable. They move between current reality and fairy tale, dream and nightmare, each one an exploration of psychology. A running theme through many is the always present risk of abandonment by loved ones. Lovely prose, excellent storytelling, unsettling. I’ll click “like.”
