Review of “House of Geishas”

My review of Ana María Shua’s microfiction collection “House of Geishas” is now up over at Literal Magazine. From the review:

Ana María Shua may be one of the best living practitioners of [microfiction]. Though the Argentinian has written novels, poetry, and children’s books, she is best known for her microfiction, often described as the “queen” of the genre. Indeed, there is so much going on in the pages of House of Geishas, but somehow more going on off the page, which is a credit to the author’s ability. In the book, she demonstrates her complete mastery of the form, providing incisive and cutting tales that question, wound, bemuse, and befuddle.
