Disclaimer: I love Dana Diehl. I've so enjoyed her star-shark of a debut and hanging tight to her kite-tails of sentences. These stories are explorers and untamable animals and worriers (in the best way). I feel as though her characters are always on the brink of becoming dangerous versions of themselves, and I love walking that knife's edge with them.
I have so many favorite stories in this collection, from the beam-of-light-husband to the couple raising dragons to the whale-swallowed brothers who tie their shoelaces together "so that if one of us falls into intestines, we both will.”
