FlyThis story was a bit too fast paced for me It spanned a long time and I felt a bit out of breath while reading itThe story follows these two women who know they basically have a dead end relationship one is moving away in 8 weeks Yet they continue to date and fall for each other When one moves away the other start wasting away She is unhappy with her life is over worked and sees the other as a means of escaping her reality yet now that she s away her emails go unanswered It s uite a sad and bitter story and one that many people allow themselves to live inI live in the bathroomI liked this one very much There s a sick twist to the story I didn t see that one coming It tells of a woman who was locked in the bathroom by her husband It shows how she deteriorates over time both mentality and physically It was sick and twisted and you really felt scared for herJenniferOh good lord This was just crazy Jennifer is totally off her rocker She is convinced that everyone loves her but no one does As the story progresses it only gets darker and Jennifer seems insane than the previous lineSkinThis one is a story about a woman who starts over eating when her relationship is going sour After the break up she can t stop over eating till eventually she doesn t even recognize the person in the mirror Definitely not terrifying like the previous two stories But her continue need to eat get rather annoying after a whileWhere Maisy WentThis one was very disturbing A crazy lady steals a baby and has no idea how to take care of the poor thing I just don t know what to say about this one Twisted horrible and very terrifying It s not like she is actually conscious of what she is doing That makes it even scarierJumpThis one is confusing This man wonders around all day looking for who we believe is his wife and son but he always refers to them as the woman and the boy Sort of odd He s the one that lost them in the first place He drops them off far from where he parks and they never make any arrangement to meet It makes me wonder if he was a stalker and was just a taxi man No idea Totally confused after reading that oneFinal ThoughtsWhile I admit some of the stories seem rather poetic they are mostly tragic and I can t see the beauty in this type of tragedy The stories were deeply disturbing and will probably make me have nightmares for a while I particularly liked I live in the bathroom That one was my favourite My least favourite was Where Maisy WentThe VerdictNot for the faint of heart

Fly is elouent succinct and unpretentious Two of the stories Fly and Skin smack of Jennifer Cie not least because of the initial gender ambiguity with themes of loneliness and heartbreak each gently examining the minutiae of unreuited love If you read these alone they re something like condensed versions of Janet Fitch elegant in their lyrical simplicity no less insightful for being short Poelsma wields a sharp knife which cuts to core of human experience and she does it seemingly without effortBut then things take a turn for the macabre and horror philes take note Poelsma may be the second of Stephen King with strong southern Gothic undertonesI started reading the second short I live in the Bathroom thinking I was reading an esoteric slightly whimsical literary collection Hah A woman descends into madness while freezing hallucinating and starving in a bathroom where her husband locked her in If you have this pegged as another allegory for male oppression the twisted ending will sweep the rug right from under your eye rolling ass Poelsma s writing is not just pretty it bites Jennifer stands as the dark gem of the collection It centres on a maniacally upbeat woman Jennifer the kind of person who brings cake to work with inane inscriptions such everybody hates Mondays and is universally despised by all The story starts with Jennifer s delusional bumbling attempts at being social in the workplace in particular with one girl Sharon whom Jennifer is convinced is really her BFF even though Sharon at no points reciprocates Things take a profoundly sick turn when Jennifer finely does get Sharon into her apartment dead drunk and unable to defend herself Jennifer is reminiscent of King s Misery or Fowles the collector but Poelsma s sly sense of humour makes is black comedy worthy of the Coen brothersIn Where Maisy went I chewed my nails to the uick It s a situational what if kind of story What if you saw a baby in a park and just took it The opening is so innocently phrased you are almost on baby snatchers side especially after the parents are described as careless hippies Tension and angst for the child abounds when the woman s real nature becomes apparent Frustrating ending aside this story is proof the horror genre is not deadJump is shoved in at the end almost an afterthought but no less gut punchy for that While Jennifer revealed Poelsma s genius for playing the horror of social ineptitiude and loneliness Jump pushes it to breaking point Poelsma is an exhibitor of monsters the kind which live in our heads With a finger on the pulse of modern day fears she shows us exactly how bad one day can get She never resorts to the supernatural or the unnecessarily gory since her art lays in nightmares which take place in real life Jump constricts like a python melancholic and deft all the while doing nothing than showing one sad person having one very bad dayPoelsma pulsates with raw talent and skill No bullshit just read the book
