Intense and atmospheric, sometimes funny and always honest, these stories by award-winning Cypriot poet and writer, are narratives about women on journeys of self-discovery. Tales of love and loss, human contact and entanglement are told with the haunting resonance of dream and fable.
‘Nora Nadjarian’s remarkable stories demonstrate the infinite flexibility and potential of the short story form. They are at once poignant, witty, stylish, and beautifully observed miniatures of magic realism. They manage to be both experimental, pushing the boundaries of the form outwards, and instantly engaging. This is a wonderful collection of mingling, overlapping, conflicting and converging voices.’ Jonathan Taylor
