Stunning collection of short stories.
Reviewed in the United States on December 26, 2020
Radium Girls by Amanda Gowin (not to be confused with books on the radium factory workers) is a beautiful, surreal collection of short stories. Each tale oozes with voice and a touch of the bizarre. The Pink Manatee, the longest story in the collection, is absolutely divine. Some of the stories are quite experimental and might not be to everybody's taste, but oh, it was to mine. Keep an eye out for repeating themes, such as twins. Gowin's Radium Girls is a gem.
