This collection of short stories is one of the best I have ever read. Sophie from work said I should pick this author up, and she was right. The title story is especially moving, because it wraps you up, then it's over, and you never see it coming. You just feel it should keep going, but it doesn't. Crazy.

This is my smug face!

If you plan to pursue further, I think you should head into "Asleep" and "Amrita".

Oh, and be sure to rave when Mike's around, as I've been trying to get him to read her for -months-.

Rave about Mike. Got it.

Oh, around Mike, yes, yes. ;)
