The final story was an unexpected piece of poetic love, existing in a wonderful realm between realism and the melodrama of love. All around, a quick, lovely read. Jan 24, Cait Califa added it.

The novella has cinematic awesomeness written all over it. It's fresh, mature, and brimming with longing.
It's a true love story, minus any sensationalist junk. I love it! If few others appreciate you, Parker, know that this is a summer favorite and I eagerly anticipate your next fictional work P.
I did not want this book to end! Paper and Bones is half poetry, half novella, all wonderful! Parker's verse stems heavily from fairy tales, mythology, and Gothicism. All follow the common thread of relationships and their woes; sometimes, their pleasures. I found myself putting sticky notes in all the places that really struck a chord with me.
Like, I wanted to give finger snaps the pages. Unrequited Love. And these stories are told so beautifully, with the most clever allusions and imagery.
I adored them all. The latter half is an engrossing story of Ava and Callum, who meet on an airplane and suffer the on-again, off-again pangs of a couple meant to be that never gets the timing right. Again, part of the reason I loved this story so much was because it carried with it a fresh, Gothic twist. Ava artsy, eccentric, unique and Callum rich boy rejector, tortured past, dysfunctional family are beautiful and conflicted and so obviously belong together; yet circumstance rips them apart continually.
The author seems to be asking whether or not love--even "this is my soulmate" love--can survive the constant beating it takes from life. The story concludes on an ambiguous yet satisfying note. It felt reminiscent of other stories I have read, but I still loved getting to fall away in these characters and their romance. It was kind of like a Hallmark movie for cool people. Like, you know how a Hallmark movie can suck you in and you feel embarrassed that you succumbed to a chick flick or maybe that's just me.
It was like that, but this story's so freaking cool I just don't care. I'm gearing up to read Parker's second volume of poetry. I really, really, really hope she explores prose again as well.
