The Dark Dark by Samantha Hunt
Recommended by Daniel K:
It’s difficult to capture all of life’s complexities in writing. Our world is harsh and hostile, but it’s equally beautiful and nurturing. Samantha Hunt masterfully walks the line between horrific and whimsical in these short stories with an ease that exposes her skill as a writer. This book is like a dream, vivid, yet uncanny, and is intermittently real and unbelievable.
