Read full description of the books:
picture a family, perfect in their imperfection. 2 girls, 3 boys, a mother, a grandmother, a grandfather... rendered with care, subtlety, and nuance by an author enchanted by this family. yet not so starry-eyed that he can't poke at their insecurities and vanities as well - playful pokes from a loving hand. the siblings play a game: one starts a story and the others continue it in their turn. what began as an adaptation of Rapunzel turns into something stranger and deeper and darker and lighter, depending on the sibling. we read this story as we read about the family Irie; both stories are a delight. I have rarely read such a charming yet spiky portrait of a family, one that had me smiling from beginning to end, and no sloppy sentimentality either. a real family. this is the last tale in the book, and it has joined my personal list of favorites. 5 stars for the story! it made me very happy. its name: "Lanterns of Romance"
the preceding stories didn't hold the same appeal for me. some are adaptations of Japanese folktales, a couple are more prosaic in nature (including another story about the family Irie). they were pleasant, occasionally cruel, but they didn't stick me in the heart - in the best sort of way - like that last tale. the translation at times uses American colloquialisms, which made me cringe a bit. still, the afterglow of the last, longest story lingers enough where I can look on the whole collection as something special.
