This debut collection of short stories combines magical realism, folklore, nature, and family in a wholly unique mix. Kyla García's expressive narration conjures the mystical atmosphere evoked in the wide range of stories. In one, women invoke magic in a course on witchcraft at a community college. Another involves the legacies of a California family's multiple Marias, and another features a bevy of supernaturally powered animals. García's pace is not too fast, not too slow, and her voicings capture the supernatural power of the featured women. With touches of the darkly moribund and the playful, these works embody the literary style of magical realism. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2022]
