Little stories with huge impact - try reading them out loud to a friend and you will be laughing or gasping and always wanting more. They are short but not always sweet. They are sly, amusing, and moving. “Fingers” is shocking, “Directions” is quite funny, and “Kiss” is almost sweet. All are very addicting, and a pleasure to read.

My favorite book of the year so far, this collection of short stories is beautiful, wise, and artistic. Reading it was like watching Casablanca, the lines and moments that should be cliche are powerful. Following a circle of artists, writers and thinkers, Nescio’s work explores and celebrates the world as an ever evolving font of creative potential.
