    1. A decent set of literary short stories, Models being the standout story by far To me they had a very feminine feel Most of the stories have a haunting air to them and will linger in your mind Gunn puts her characters relationships under the microscope and she does a good job of introducing a wide range of characters with a wide range of their afflictions to each story.
