Dense, eloquent, smart prose Valente is a master of the list story I ve never read better.I look forward to her story collection and novel, just out She has such a way with words like nobody else She manages to capture the smallest of moments and fragility of our existence with such depth and beauty.Flash fiction at its finest.
