Eye of a Needle: And Other Stories by Cornelia Fick
Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 46,170. Language: English (South African dialect). Published: September 30, 2016. Categories: Fiction » Literature » Literary
Eye of a Needle is robust, interesting and written with a compassionate eye; this latter point being its greatest strength. ‘Flying ants’ is a delicately observed story of emotional neglect and abuse; ‘Belinda’, a slice of life story in a small South African town. ‘Knit one’ solidifies the tone and major thematic of the collection, the decay and unseen emotional damage caused by inequality.

These are not “touristy” stories. They are deep and hard, a reflection of the regions in which they’re set. In the Alaska segment, Warner focuses on the passions that isolation and weather can bring out in human beings. In his “Hawaiian Island Trilogy,” he looks at a different kind of mythos – the often ethereal dimension of time.
