Staff Reviews

The two stories comprising this book are delicate and yet almost mathematical in their precision. Kitchen could be described in a proof of sorts: this book is for anyone who has ever lost someone: everyone has lost someone: therefore, this book is for everyone. Coming in at a mere 152 pages, this book packs more of punch than I ever imagined. While overall not a sad book, I found myself unexpectedly in tears at the end, for the ever unsolved equation of the sadness but also the beauty of life and its brevity.
