This Just In… The Weight of a Feather & Other Stories by Judy Croome

“The promise implicit in an anthology is that it aspires to present something different, unexpected” -- Joyce Carol Oates (Introduction to The Oxford Book of American Short Stories)

From the classical form of “The Weight of a Feather',” first published by The Huffington Post (2013), to the suggestive allegory of “The Leopard and The Lizard,” this collection of short stories by South African author Judy Croome is an ideal mix of the familiar and the startling. These vibrant slices of life testify to the mysterious and luminous resources of the human spirit. Whether feeling the harrowing emotion in “The Last Sacrifice” or the jauntiness of “Jannie Vermaak’s New Bicycle,” the reader will delight in a plethora of stories that cross boundaries to both challenge and entertain with their variety.
