What is Not Yours is Not Yours

by Helen Oyeyemi

All is not as it first seems in this themed collection, which struck me as being both traditional and modern. Puppets talk, wolves are not wolves and characters roam between the pages. Although I embraced the weirdness, it may not appeal to readers who prefer a more straightforward form of story telling.

A key ring gets left in your care and you reject all responsibility for it yet can't bring yourself to throw it away. Nor can you give the thing away - to whom can someone of good conscience give such an object as a key?
Always up to something, stitching paths and gateways together even as it sits quite still; its powers of interference can only be guessed at.
