I just read Louise Erdrich’s short story in the New Yorker today. I didn’t feel that her inventiveness and descriptions were noticeably better than some of the submissions in this collection. For instance, here’s a description of an afternoon scene from JJ Marsh: “(the) sun illuminated a whole palette of greens in the hedgerows, sparkled off granite rocks and lit celandines, poppies, and cornflowers like scattered sweets.” Or JW Hicks crafting a tantalizing mix of archaic and other-worldly in the dialect of a young girl remembering her lost freedom: “Even tired from dream-frights or shadow-weary with mill labor, I relished walking to and fro.”
If you’re a fan of well-crafted stories, you’ll be happy with these.
The Boy with the Bird is the penultimate story and is a cleverly told urban fairy tale written in the third person from the point of view of Alya, the central character. The collection concludes with The Stone Boat, an intriguing story from JJ Marsh that challenges and teases the reader to puzzle out its many layers of meaning.
A highly accomplished, well crafted and edited short story collection by a group of talented writers. Loosely themed as a taster of the works of the authors, they have included a recipe to go with each story. This reader will be starting with the Ancient Egyptian Honey Cake and the Breton galettes. Five stars and highly recommended.
