I always have a hard time writing up short story collections! I love them but find it hard to evaluate the book as a whole separate from the sum of its parts, besides saying like, the writing is great (which it is), her characters are generally rich and complicated (which they are). In this case I’ll skip the exercise of going deeper. The standouts here were:

Water, All Its Weight
Difficult Women
Requiem for a Glass Heart
Break All The Way Down
