Tenants Harbor - 2022 #4 - A somewhat dark and haunting collection of short stories....seemingly devoted to the down-side of relationships....and the perils therein created. Not for the faint of heart....& certainly not for someone in anyway insecure in a relationship. Some i liked a lot, some were just ok, and several were impossible for me to follow. Could be the book....could be me. So, i really enjoyed "The Sacred Marriage"; "Happy Onion"; "Stray Children"; & "The Lady With the Pet Dog" (depressing as they all were). "The Turn of the Screw" was also enjoyable and rather clever, once i figured out how to read it. "Where I Lived and What I Lived For"; "The Dead"; & "Nightmusic" were incomprehensible to me.....others were so-so. That's pretty much all I got....... ( )
