In complete agreement with ksoles, this is an amazing collection by an author who deserves wider exposure. I would like to add that her imagery describing mental and emotional states are startlingly right on and sometimes downright coffee-spitting funny. Dark, yes... many shades of dark. Incisive yet compassionate. I will be reading more of this wonderful author's work.
