Summary: A man uses a pair of hand puppets to replay scenes of failures of his relationships.
Review: The title was lovely, the prose was strong, and this story could certainly be published in a literary magazine. But I expected something else and it didn’t come: The story was missing a speculative element. I’d have loved to read this as a magic realism story, but in the end it was just a failed interpretation. Maybe I just wasn’t in the mood.
