Mistress's Sparrow

Repetto jazz shoes ❖ "My Mistress's Sparrow is Dead"by Jeffrey Eugenides

Today, I am reading this volume of love stories collected by the writer of The Virgin Suicides, Jeffrey Eugenides. They are a literary collection of short stories on the varying degrees of love. They remind us why love is good, bad and ugly... and why it is so important to have in your life. The collection of 26 stories are written within the last 120 years so although written in very different times, the essential elements of love remain the same.
