Sania Murray's stories about colonialism and war glitter with juxtapositions.
War is an unusual subject for a young female writer; with each piece, Murray proves to be increasingly exceptional.
Murray has marshalled searing prose to construct tales of faith (more often than not unwarranted), courage and savagery.
The two notions of war as another planet and of cognitive displacement are endered with chance timing and shocking force...
Murray crafts her pieces as series of snapshots...that alternately zoom to details and step back for panoramic historical sweeps.
[Murray] turns the bombed-out and broken setting of World War II into a theater for humankind, where weakness and grace are writ large.
