Short Story Month Feature: Naming the Shadows

One thing this past year has taught your porcupette is that sometimes it’s gratifying to just … slow your roll. Without socializing and events and random shopping or any number of other distractions, we’ve all been forced to relax a bit and take a more laid-back approach to life.

Naming the Shadows

Sharon Berg’s short story collection Naming the Shadows is one that rewards such a leisurely approach. This quietly insightful collection examines the consequences of pivotal moments and the outcomes of difficult decisions. The characters run the gamut of generations, experiences and worldviews, but they are all faced with the need to re-examine their perspectives—and themselves. If you enjoy stories with many facets and carefully considered details, you’ll love Naming the Shadows.
