This collection combines whimsical and surreal illustrations with engaging, intimate encounters that explore the depths of the human experience. Unique and diverse in setting, and with touches of magical realism, these nine stories will tug at the strings of the wandering, romantic heart, setting it delightfully ablaze. Included is a story about a nun who finds herself stranded in the Mexican desert with nothing but a few cobs of corn and a stray horse, a story of a young Londoner who travels to Vancouver where a handsome stranger entices her to take a leap into the unknown, and a story told from the stunning perspective of a slave who, as a child, witnesses the brutal murder of her mother, and survives through her connection to her brother and the natural world. The compelling storytelling takes readers across the world and through the ages, with remarkable insight and soul-moving moments, when paths cross and time unfolds. The author's language, imagery, and attention to detail plunge the reader into these memorable lives that include adventure, courage, love, loss, longing and all the hope in between.… (mais)

A collection of shorts which seize moments of life and display a glimpse of the human soul. The stories tend to live on the the boundary of that which is completely realistic and faintly surreal at the same time. The illustrations perplex me. If they have some connection to the stories, it is simply to subtle for me.

I received a complimentary copy of this book through the Goodreads First Reads program. ( )

Short stories are not my favorite genre. They stress me out, but this was a pleasant collection. Interesting stories with diverse characters and largely happy endings. ( )

This is a mixed bag of stories. They range over times and places. It wasn't until I was halfway through that I began to perk up at the stories. I do not always like stories with an O'Henry ending. There was a mystical sense to "Up on a Mountain" to which I resonated. There is a short poem embedded in the story "Yht Little Girl" which has repeating phrases that I found fetching. The Kid is rather attractive about two men in love, with travelers in Spain and a speaking puppet. It made me think obliquely about Coelho's "Alchemist." "The Teteriv was a good, a sort of Rake's Progress; and then the long-awaited snow covers the characters' actions. ( )

For the Love of Meat is a compilation of short stories that cover a range of themes. Each was set in a very different place, and sometimes a different time, with very unique characters. My two personal favorites were Stumble and Fall and the Teteriv. In the first, a girl is inspired to travel and live abroad just for the sake of the experience; she was stuck in a rut and the idea of traveling was calling to her. I've heard that call, and lived in different places, and I love to travel so the story definitely spoke to me. The Teteriv is set in a different century, in Poland, and it was just so different from the others and I enjoyed reading it.

Until recently I had only read short stories from Russian literature. A few months ago, however, I started reading those of Appel and enjoyed them very much. So I decided to explore reading more modern short stories.
Unfortunately, I did not find anything in this collection of interest for me (I know, I am in the minority on this).
It was marketed as surrealistic, but I found little in them that I would consider to be so.
Most of the stories were slow-going and seemed to seem to drag on forever when in actuality the were only a few pages long. They were also open-ended as to seem unfinished. The stories were so unmemorable that after reading the next one you could not recall the previous ones. The same-titled story For the 'Love of Meat' was the singular exception (although I saw where it was headed about a quarter of the way into it). It was an extremely short story, and cute. But I still cannot help but ponder if it would have been forgotten, too, if the title of the book had not been the same. ( )
