The "perilously beautiful" ( Boston Globe ) first story collection by the author of the acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-winning #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.
