A short, moving meditation on the power and brutality of love... ( )
  AlanPoulter | Mar 11, 2016 |
A poetic, short piece utilizing a thought-association format to gradually reveal a tragic scenario.

This was a Hugo-nominated piece (we read several short nominees in my book club this month), and it's not the only one that I felt really didn't belong under the speculative fiction umbrella. The only 'speculative' elements here are purely metaphorical.

I have to admit, upon beginning the story, I wasn't really a big fan of the style. As it progressed, my opinion of it as a piece of writing rose, however.

It's about grief, and crime, and the fallout that strikes victims of violence and those around them. ( )
