I am always thrilled when a short story collection gets a lot of attention. Keep reading short stories! My favorites here were The Loss of Heaven and Thicker Than Water, but every single one of them had good moments. Bookpage says:
Throughout 11 short stories – all set in Florida, all focusing on transformative experiences in the lives of women – Moniz weaves tales that are as profound as they are unnerving, as moving as they are surprising.
