The dreadful game of Yates' Black Chalk is fairly straightforward - a series of escalating dares with escalating consequences - but the narrative is not. Constantly flitting between past and present, this story kept me perpetually off balance, and I couldn't put it down. I dare you not to get caught up in this twisting tale.

Perfect for long stretches of uninterrupted reading. .. this is THAT book which will transport the reader to another time and place. This is the story of the Milton family through generations as they face the challenges of their changing landscape. From the 1930’s to the present, issues of race and class impact their lives and create upheaval. Choices made and paths taken in earlier decades come to the surface and unsettle the current generation. In life, as in literature, we can not escape our past.

In this collection of short stories you'll find something eerie, magical, bizarre, and wonderful. All of these stories twist fantasy with reality for a perfect harmony. I'm a huge fan of Karen Russell, and this is probably my favorite story collection yet.
