Good wine does funny things with words and time. Milliken juxtaposes the internal against the external quite well; her characters are in a constant conflict about how much they owe each other.
In turn, she asks us: When do we use storytelling to soothe our own wounds, and when do we use it to make others feel better? Characters bear burdens of their familial sins; they repeat them as much as they are marked by them. I think of the tank tops I used to wear, showing off my bruises. I think of a man saved from cancer to a pack a day.

I think of the house I have never asked to see, that I have never been invited to visit. I think of the booze in my orange juice then and now. Charm as in delight; charm as if by magic. In a prose that's never less than lucidly graceful, Heather A. Slomski conjures stories distinguished by, and memorable for, their imaginative power. Civility reigns, voices are not raised, much goes unsaid. But just beneath the sophisticated composure are longing, loss, heartbreak.

Slomski is truly a fresh voice on the scene, and The Lovers Set Down Their Spoons is that rare thing, a new book as innovative in its design as it is compulsively readable.
In prose spare and daring, poised yet startling, these stories take shape in reality, but reality, they sometimes show us, is not a separate realm from the fantastic or the surreal.
