Betty-san -- Father Goose -- Powers -- Chair in the rain.

These stories are mostly about female characters who feel foreign, isolated, and alienated.
This book felt oddly familiar, but I can’t place when I would have read it.
Favorite lines:
1. ˝Nature always seemed to enfold human lives so snugly.
With the result, at times, that one overran the other.
Nature might suddenly engulf human life; people might trample nature underfoot˝ (62).
2. ˝How odd insubstantial words had turned out to be.
The remarks exchanged regularly over tea or cocktails weren’t words, she concluded, but a succession of polite noises˝
