Tender: Stories

Tender: Stories

"In trying to describe this book, I cast my net wide. 'Think the heartsick understanding of childhood by Karen Russell,' I'll say, 'Think the subtle speculative fantasy of Neil Gaiman. Think the soaring genius of Helen Oyeyemi, where you don't know if you can ever really understand what she's saying about displacement and belonging, but it gets you anyway, gets you where it hurts. Think of the metaphysical architecture of Borges and Calvino.'

Some of these stories will make you weep in your room and exult to your roommates. Some of these stories will make your knuckles whiten, your eyes widen, your breath quicken. Some of these stories will break you and then put you back together with shining gold lacquer to better highlight your fault lines."
