The Laws of Evening: Stories by Mary Yukari Waters

The Laws of Evening : Stories - Mary Yukari Waters

A collection of nice Japanese stories, but not as enjoyable as her novel. The stories felt more fast-paced than the novel (I enjoyed its slow nature), and some overlapped with the novel or with each other. I liked some of the variety, but it was just ok overall.
