Lost in the Stacks

I read widely and compulsively and my fancies are ever changing. My love of reading, however, is no mere fancy.

Steps Through the Mist: A Mosaic Novel - Zoran Živković, Alice Copple-Tošić The Complete Review has never let me down.

Zoran Zivkovic's Steps Through the Mist is a collection of inter-connected short stories (a mosaic novel, if you will) about five women, each with a unique relationship to their fate. There is an interesting investigation here into creation, knowledge and command; in each story, a woman may have all or none regarding her fate but her possession of any of them forms the crux of each story or 'tile'.

This was a fresh, exciting piece of writing and I'm glad that I came across it. I will read more by this author in the future. If you like philosophy with your fiction, this is for you.
