    A slender collection of short stories, each one packing quite a punch Love s writing style is quite pared back, understated, and the subtlety of the stories is a delight Each story interrogates a different aspect of culture and or politics, investigating the domestic and small, as well as th...

    Secret Lives of Books by Rosaleen Love is the latest volume in Twelfth Planet Press s Twelve Planets series of collections With this one, I wasn t sure what to expect going in other than feminism since I m not familiar with any of Love s other work And it was about feminism, although that was mainly the last story, which I suspect is the one to stick in people s min...
