Osananajimi ga Sugoku Yakkai na Kosei ni Kakatteru disappointing but I am glad I got to read the Full Service Shelter gem Thanks to NetGalley for the advance cop. “A Full Service Shelter” a volunteer at aog shelter tirelessly A Gypsy Promise devotedly cares forogs on a list to be euthanized In “Greed” a spurned wife examines her husband’s affair with a glamorous older married woman And in “Cloudland” the longest story in the collection a woman reckons with the choice she made as a teenager to give up her newborn infant uietly azzling these stories are replete with moments of revelation and transcendence and with Hempel’s singular startling inimitable sentences. .
