Read full description of the books By Light We Knew Our Names:I believe this is the first ever short story collection I have ever read. It was brilliant!
This is a collection of thirteen stories that encompass so many themes I don't even know where to begin. We see girls punching pillows underneath the northern lights, a boy strumming a guitar for his sick mother, a woman who's marriage has ended in a lot of green tea and so many more amazing and beautifully constructed stories. Grief, sickness, love and life are wonderfully explored by Valente in this novel. I can't really do the book justice in my description, all I can say is that you should definitely go and pick it up!
I fell in love with Anne Valente's writing style, nearer the end I was rationing myself to a story a day as I wanted it to last longer! I know after this I shall be hunting out some more short story collections to add to my reading list. I would highly recommend to all.
