Folklore comes alive* in this collection of intertwined short stories

*metaphorically. Most of the characters are pretty dead throughout their respective stories.

Aoko Matsuda, along with the translator, Polly Barton, creates a quietly eerie atmosphere that bridges the gap between the ordinary (an assembly line worker, a empty-nester housewife, a single mom working multiple jobs) and the otherworldly (a dead mother’s voice, a shapeshifting fox, a babysitting ghost) in this gorgeous collection of modern day folklore.
