The "perilously beautiful" (Boston Globe) first story collection by the author of the acclaimed #1 New York Times bestseller All The Light We Cannot See.The exquisitely crafted stories in Anthony Doerr's debut collection take readers from the African Coast to the pine forests of Montana to the damp moors of Lapland, charting a vast physical and emotional landscape. Doerr explores the human condition in all its varieties- metamorphosis, grief, fractured relationships, and slowly mending hearts - conjuring nature in both its beautiful abundance and crushing power. Some of the characters in these stories contend with hardships; some discover unique gifts; all are united by their ultimate deference to the ravishing universe outside themselves.

Very different but kept my attention with his precise, descriptive writing.

I picked up this book because I read and enjoyed ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE. Every story is a gem; beautiful, exotic, sad, eerie, with many passages I returned to and then copied them in my notebook for future readings.

I am not a short story fan so if you share this predilection, be advised. Otherwise strong stories well written but I far prefer his full length novels.
