"This collection is luminous and breathtaking, varied and delightful and surprising"

The fruits of the sustained doubt are occasional miracles, of prose and vision and in life, startling moments. You’ll see a pope dancing alone all night before a chest of drawers holding his own bones. With other characters, you’ll find the ecstatic even in suffering. L’Heureux refused the merely grim and looked always for something else in his tragedies. This collection is luminous and breathtaking, varied and delightful and surprising, scattering perfectly shaped gems before us
