Gaiman In Terms Ofin terms of matter Some stories are fairly straight literary fiction Thursdays Six to Eight pm Others have a hint of fantasy Secret Life With Cats And others have than just a hint Jakob Wywialowski and the Angels Also like them she seems eually comfortable in short story and essay modesI was already an Eddie Campbell fan which is what attracted me to this book in the first place But I m definitely keen to check out of Audrey Niffenegger s work now Definitely recommended Most of these pieces originated as text only stories by Niffenegger and were later adapted into comics by Campbell By the time they got married they had been collaborating long distance for a while Some of the stories incorporate fairies monsters ghosts and other worlds A في الانفصال young woman on her way to a holiday party travels via a mirror to another land where she is ueen a hapless bar fly trades one fairy mistress for another Arthur Conan Doyle s father sketches fairies in an asylum a middle aged woman on a cruise decides to donate her remainingears to her aged fatherMy favorite of the fantastical ones was Jakob Wywialowski and the Angels a story of a man dealing with an angel infestation in the attic it first appeared as a holiday story on the homepage in 2003 and is the oldest piece here with the newest dating from 2015 I also liked Thursdays Six to Eight pm in which a man goes to great lengths to assure two hours of completely uninterrupted reading per weekStrangely my two top pieces were the nonfiction.
