The Courage Consort by Michel Faber

The Courage Consort - Michel Faber

A collection of three novellas of varying stories, all fairly enjoyable. The last one was oddest, about children raised in a strange setting and fending for themselves. I think I liked the first two better, especially the one about women helping excavate an historical site. The first, named the same as the book's title was all right but ended too abruptly. I like this author's writing though and would like to read more of his work.
