A collection of 14 short stories, characterised by a deep aspiration to creativity in style and narrative technique. The fine portrayal of characters brings them to life and imparts them substance.
A subtle dosage of a stirring sense of humour which uplifts the most tragic circumstances, as if to sing to joy till the bitter end. Plots are quite varied throughout the book, although one theme unites the different stories -- love and the manifold costumes it may don ; the strength of this feeling as well as the fire and water one can go through in the name of it. 'All you need is love' could be a motto to this collection.
An ode to life, with suspense and emotion. An intense and powerful book.
