    ePUB David Thomas Moore ó Not So Stories Epub é Not So PDF/EPUB ² ó stories pdf, Not So free, Not So Stories PDF/EPUBI have never read the Kipling book this was written in reaction of but I knew about Kipling’s writing and how rooted in British colonialism it was So the idea of this anthology reclaiming the narrative really appealed to meRight from the title of these stories I could guess at the content of the original book up to the structure of the originals since so many used the “How the x got their x” and many were addressed to “Best Beloved” I feel like the stories which seemed to stick closer to the originals were the ones I liked least but they still has a lot to offerObviously this was a very diverse bag of stories and I found a lot of favourites I was looking forward to the very last How the Camel Got Her Paid Time Off by Paul Krueger because I had read and loved his

    ePUB David Thomas Moore ó Not So Stories Epub é Not So PDF/EPUB ² ó stories pdf, Not So free, Not So Stories PDF/EPUBThis incredible anthology is an answer to Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories Each story is its own vibrant take on the allegories some directly than others They reclaim these narratives and challenge the racism in Kipling’s workAll of these stories were wonderful and brought something uniue to the table but there were a few that really stood out for meSaṃsāra by Georgina Kamsika tells a rich melancholy story of a biracial child who has been disconnected from part of her culture due to the influence of racism and her white father It explores this theme through the lens of grief and familial love The prose was profoundly gorgeousBest Beloved by Wayne Santos was a stunning and chilling story highlighting the evil racist actions of the British Empire both on a large scale and individually and their undoing via cultural customs they so often sneered at I fell in love with itueen by Joseph E Cole and The Cat Who Walked by Herself by Achala Upendra
