Hell Going by Lynn Coady (236)

This is a book of nine stories that covers a lot of topics.  It has an amazing depth and breath.

In one of the stories, a young nun is charged with talking an anorexic out of her religious fanatics toys with the thin distance between practicality and blasphemy. A strange bond between a teacher and a schoolgirl takes on ever deeper and stranger as time goes.

In another story, a bride-to-be with a penchant for nocturnal bondage can’t seem to stop bashing herself up in the light of day.

I couldn’t help but squirm as I was reading these stories. It is a book like no other that I read this year. It is a book that will make you take note of the ordinary and extraordinary in everyone and everything.
