Summary
This volume of short stories features weird and wonderful characters pursuing connections in extraordinary ways (and sometimes failing). Surreal events (like the sewing together of tigers or the creation of a dress the color of the moon) punctuate many of the tales, though not all of them -- one tells the very realistic story of a woman who fulfills her husband's fantasy and then finds she can't quite let go of it. Many reviewers describe these stories as "fairy tales," but while some are whimsical, they're also dark and melancholy, like the best fairy tales for adults. Versatile and distinctive, this is a collection to be savored. - Description by Shauna Griffin
