"Offbeat" is the word for it - but these stories definitely have their own powerful song. The writing is purely poetic and simple, every phrase saying much more than they seem to at first - simultaneously feather-light and knife-sharp with emotion.

While it can be a little bit...cringe-inducing with its outdated impression of what's "edgy" and "cool", this novel is nothing short of dreamy from start to finish, with fascinating lessons that feel more like gentle reminders on how to love, rather than preachy instructions on how to live.

I love this book (anthology?).

1. I wish I had written it.
2. It is deceptively simple, like @Scot said. Block's prose are almost weightless in their brevity, but still breath-takingly poetic.
3. The setting and characters are at once completely fanciful and dreamlike, and also real and full.

I've read this set more than once, and I will definitly continue to revisit it, so that Block can keep reminding me of the life I would like to lead: not perfect, but so, so beautiful and full.
