    Imaginary Friends is a strong collection of short stories that takes ordinary lives and graces them with the extraordinary quality that elevates the mundanely personal into the uniform magnificence of time shared. These stories deal with raw memory made present, remembrances of childhood made achingly immediate, and if one aim of fiction is to be transported to the self then this collection succeeds in abundance.Thanks to some fluidly fractured descriptions the writing projects the honesty of beauty, the harshness of it, and images of the lives of others are pulled incredibly close. While the characters are only with us for a flicker they are drawn with an economy that adds to the sense of the incompleteness in the authenticity of knowing others, giving the impression of skirting through these lives with an intense clarity. I want to return to some of these stories. Not all, but some.Skipping along a thread that weaves its way through tales touched with down-to-earth surreality and the lucidity of the lightness of the everyday, these stories in their range are bound by a clear emotional intelligence and simple clarity. A sense of what lies beneath permeates and is a very effective drag. A fine, cohesive collection that I enjoyed and will come back to. I look forward to reading more from this author.Another 4.5 Stars - I'm being completely spoilt recently.
