Stories range from haunting fantasy, to paranormal detectives, to war stories.
Although I had my favorites, there isn't a bad story in here.
On my keeper shelf.
It's best, I think, when the dreaminess and literary aspects come in the service of a strong plot, and there were several such stories here. I particularly liked "The World Without Sleep", with its angels, truly original vampires, goblins, and shadows, and a nice, complex plot.
If you like Monette's writing, you will love this collection!
I don't like short stories because they end just when I've gotten invested but these are different. They feel complete within themselves. Ms. Monette described them in the book's afterward as unpacked poems and it's a telling description. The only short stories I've ever read that I would compare them to is a series of Japanese short stories with strange imagery and unusual approaches to a subject, such as one where a girl detached her arm and, weeping, gave to a man who then took it away with him and lived with it.
If you like stories that approach an idea from an oblique angle you will like this book.
