Okparanta is a deft writer with an eye for unusual details. She skilfully negotiates the compression that is a necessary feature of the genre; complex emotions and characteristics are hinted at in a particular tone of voice, style of dress or an aside. The collection is notable for the variations of voice and experiments with narrative point of view and chronology.
