An engaging, lightweight collection of six stories detailing such characteristic tropes as spirituality, love, loss and memory. Wistfully written in sparse and tight prose, this collection of Banana’s earlier writings show the evolution of her simple, elegant and somewhat colloquial style. The articulate, young protagonists of her stories are in the midst of some existential crisis or conflict, and undergo a process of self-realization and evolution.
