This third collection of short stories by Alice Tawhai explores the complex mix of beauty and heartache, resilience and joys of people living in seemingly bleak situations. The perceptions of people and their lives are fresh and poignant, seeing the humanity and quiet hope alongside the darkness.

Mehso-so

It took a longer than expected to finish this book. I knew going into it that the stories were dark, which sounded right up my alley. I didn't realize that in this context "dark" meant that the whole world these stories take place in was bleak and hopeless. I still appreciated some of the stories, and the look at different lives on a different continent. I would call the title story especially dark, but it's not much darker than the rest.
