Up On The Roof

Finished February 25
Up On The Roof by P.K. Page

This collection of stories is wide-ranging and told from the viewpoints of very different characters. One thing they have in common is the skilled use of language. The stories leave you unsure of what is real and what is in the character's imagination. From a middle-aged man who escapes his domestic issues by moving up to his roof, to a man who finds comfort and a new motivation is his aging parents' collection of books. From a woman who is driven to make sculptures to a woman who uses the debris from a life she hates to make beauty. A very interesting collection.
