Strange things happen...

"Strange things happen all around us all the time, but is it best to acknowledge or to turn away from moments when the weird pokes its way into our ordinary lives?" I find describing story collections to be difficult. I find recapping each story tiresome, but spreading the word is important to me. I really like this collection. Like the title clearly states, these are dark tales of people, mostly women, searching for happiness and contentment, in a frustrating landscape of technology, infidelities, infertility and mortality. Hunt has a strong voice and tone. I especially like the bookends of the collection, where she revisits the first main character, in the final story and takes it to a satisfying conclusion. I liked her last novel, Mr. Splitfoot too. She is an author who has a firm place on my radar.

A small collection of stories that starts out too literary to quite be sff and winds up too weird to be properly literary. Enjoyable, though somewhat too focused on sex and motherhood for my personal tastes; my favorite was A Love Story.
