We All Fall Down is one of the standout stories comes toward the end of the collection. True to the collection’s title, each piece exhibits a strong, clearly defined voice, delivered in a range of forms. The stories we tell ourselves are not formed in a vacuum, but they are also not set in stone; these writers illustrate that stories are meant to be interrogated, and truths are meant to be told.
Editorial View Of We All Fall Down
People wanted to be in the streets, but the pounding rain drove them back, and so they huddled in archways and under awnings. Yellow squares of light stained the water that pattered ankle-deep in the street as Astrid scurried along. On a wide porch, teenagers in palace livery sang the city anthem in four-part harmony. They stopped as she passed, and some of the boys gave her ragged salutes. She dipped her umbrella forward, a kind of nod, and kept going. No matter who saluted her, she was alone out here in the middle of the street, as she sloshed her way through the puddles. Nobody else had any reason to venture forth tonight. Nobody else’s life was coming apart in their hands.
At last, she came to the palace. Its front gateway was unguarded, and the iron gates lay crumpled in a slag heap on the cobbles, so she traveled uninterrupted through the sentryless double doors into the atrium with its great mural of Otiotan fighting the serpent with his flaming sword. Here there was a party. And when they saw who stood in the atrium shaking the rain from her umbrella, the crowd let up a cheer. Astrid, the small brown witch they’d known since they were children, who was now their champion. Astrid, who had blown the gates off the palace with her powerful witchcraft. Astrid, with a sprig of wild mint pinned to her coat, to signify that she was one of the people. Astrid, whose pager was always on to answer the calls of the sick and the needy.ere she wanted to go, of course, was the dungeon.
