A review by kpkulski
Black Cranes: Tales of Unquiet Women, by Geneve Flynn, Lee Murray


Powerful. As a half Korean woman, this collection resonated on a very personal level. These stories are often painful as they are about strength, they are just as much about cultural confusion-- confusion of loyalty and how to be loyal to family and self... as well as about clarity. About feeling hollow and how otherness plays a role in each aspect. It is also contains damn good horror stories that include monsters, lore and ghosts that are not often brought to English speaking audiences. I loved it and is it one of those works that will now occupy a very meaningful place on my shelf of books that left not just a mark but an influence.
