In this long-awaited collection, Liesl Jobson, internationally
acclaimed for her mastery of the very short "flash fiction" form,
turns to the longer form of the short story. In places, the author
experiments with the narrative structure by crafting together
snapshots in a collage form. Elsewhere, she retains the more
conventional story line. She writes with panache and hypnotic
honesty about topics as diverse as anorexia, cleaning the oven, the
terror of losing a child, exile, infidelity and desire. Few writers
are as assured in traversing the terrain of loss and fear. Yet
there is quirky humour and sly surprise in these stories told from
the perspectives of the policewoman, art teacher, athlete,
bassoonist, lover and mother. Treat yourself: these dark chocolate
and bitter orange stories are erotic, edgy and wise.
