Sleeping in Velvet
The blurred lines between enchantment and illusion takes on new magic-realist resonances in this collection of twenty-three stories and a novella. Ms. Frank creates subtle calibrations of the inner spaces and silences separating people, and the haunting undercurrents of feeling that hold them together. In the concluding novella, The Map Maker, those undercurrents exert an especially powerful tow, washing up a lost cargo of familial misunderstandings.
