The reflect as soon as hung in a bed room, yet now it's cracked and propped opposed to a dumpster in an alley. The condemned guy has refused the common final cigarette yet approved as a hood the black slip that used to be carelessly tossed over a nook of the mirror's body. The slip nonetheless smells faintly of a well-known fragrance.
So starts "Tosca," the 1st during this vibrant number of Stuart Dybek's love tales.

Paper Lantern brims with the intoxicating elixirs identified to each love-struck, lovelorn middle, and it marks the excellent go back of 1 of America's most vital fiction writers on the peak of his powers.
