Showcasing the intensity and perception of a truly gifted writer, this collection of stories by the author of the number-one New York Times best-seller The Memory Keeper's Daughter transports us to exotic locations as it follows the lives of those on the fringes of society: a fire-eater, an American and his Korean war bride, a juggler and a trapeze artist, and a cleaning woman whose life is interwoven with Marie Curie's. Each must confront, in dramatically differing ways, the barriers of time, place, and circumstance in that most universal of human experiences: the quest to discover, and understand, the elusive mysteries of love.



"The Secrets of a Fire King gives eloquence to an astonishing range of discoveries and leaves the reader entranced." (The New York Times Book Review)

Loved it!

Kim Edwards wrote this remarkable book of short stories, each of them different, taking us to the most colourful places of the world, showing us foreign countries and their unusual environments or cultures. I really enjoyed the language and the many beautiful metaphors. My favourite story was "Thirst", which is almost like the fairie tale of the little mermaid. A great mix! I can recommend this book to anyone who enjoys short stories. The reader also did an excellent job.
