Another green world
If you don’t believe in magic, read Henry Wessells and find out how wrong you are.
Bookish in the best, Borgesian sense, this collection of Henry Wessells’ fiction is a quiet delight.
Because nothing is as real as a book. Nothing is as lasting as a dream.
[“Ten Bears”], one of the best stories published in 2003 : a wonderful fantastical mystery that is also a tissue of allusions to the work of van de Wetering . . . an intricate and elegant creation, a very satisfying object.
