*** Shadow’s Weave – Yoon Ha Lee
A woman drags a man, who seems set on murdering her, to a temple in search of help. The man has lost his ‘shadow’ and without it, is subject to violent and erratic behavior. He also doesn’t want to be helped – but at great risk to herself, the woman insists. But the temple may not provide everything hoped for…
I had mixed feelings about this one. As always, with Yoon Ha Lee, it’s beautifully written and full of striking detail. But it also seemed a too-obvious parable for dealing with a partner with mental illness, and I wasn’t really sure I agreed with its conclusions.
