Gifts and other stories
In this stunning debut collection of short stories, Charlotte Holmes brings to life characters whose confrontations with each other make them - and us - alive. These are powerful, heart-wrenching stories, and the sense of loss they convey is made all the more resonant and haunting by obsessive memory. Charlotte Holmes writes with great intelligence and a sure, deft touch. Her unwavering vision and lyrical prose make these stories at once harrowing and beautiful, and mark the emergence of a significant new voice in American fiction.
