How to Fly - Rachael Perry Rachael's tales are a vivid and resonating romp through the places we know best, smallish towns and the giant hopes of the big-hearted, but underappreciated, highlighting the quietly magical and miraculous things we would otherwise have missed, and each tale, bittersweet or triumphant, resounds with a universal trueness. Passing up this compilation would be akin to a nestling accepting the world as just a dull ring of twigs, never venturing outward, never learning how to fly.
