Paperback Ý Little Houses ePUB â

The stories in Eleanor Swanson’s Little Houses are full of subtle mystery and nuance—of what we tell each other and the secrets we keep how we connect and fail to connect how we love and how we betray those we love And how there are no answers not anywhere though looking for them is what keeps us alive These stories deal with nothing less than what it means to be human

    Open Little Houses and enjoy immersion in Eleanor Swanson's little worlds Each story operates within known reality but with the wash of super or supra natural hovering on the edgesI was happily held in part by each story's mystery or hook that begs and achieves an answer The ride was even pleasurable because of details of physicality Her shoulder blades are hard against my hands like folded wings and behaviors described that are delightfully recognizable but rendered meaningful when woven into a storyIt's remarkable for me to enjoy a short story collection so throughly since I often feel short stories don't sufficiently evolve and come to satisfying completion Swanson succeeds on both counts A great read
