The quirkiness of this brief set of experiences displayed as memory “vignettes” had a straightforward delivery that made me smile even though my heart contracted with bittersweet emotion when I sensed what would inevitably happen between the two main characters. As the author’s character fell in love, I fell in love. As they received a painful epiphany, so did I. The poignancy of the tale I found sublime.
I felt privileged to witness the rare gift of a writer who can so powerfully imbue their story with such vivid life and emotion using a minimum of words. Beautiful simplicity is how I would describe “4 Stories Down, 4 Stories Up”.
