    1. This short story is available through the New Yorker. It tells the story of how a mortal child, stolen by a god and goddess, is unsuccessfully treated for leukemia and the story of how the human child came to be with the god and goddess. The god and goddess use "glamour" to disguise what they are from the humans around them, at least until their grief pushes them to a fight and the glamour slips.


    2. Some spoilers ahead.This short story ripped out my heart and tossed it out of the window. This was a dark, happy, and sad story all rolled into one. It is about love, loss, confusion, humanity, and compassion. I don’t normally like cancer stories, but this one captivated me.In this masterpiece we meet the King & Queen of fairies and their sick human son. After one of their many fights, King Oberon gifts Titania with a human child as a pet. Titania and Oberon grow to love the child and we s [...]


    3. Beautiful short story, full of heart rending detail and analogies about parenthood, love, sickness, humanity and loss.


    4. Chris Adrian’s “A Tiny Feast” follows the tragedy of the characters Titania and Oberon, who are an immortal Queen and a King living among mortals. In the story, they adopt a boy in hopes for saving them from the boredom of eternal life and their rocky marriage. However, Titania and Oberon finds out that the boy has cancer and because they have never experienced sorrow or illness before in their immortal life, they have no clue as to what they should do or how to feel. İllness is a rather [...]


    5. "She peered at the parents, imagining their hearts like machines, manufacturing surfeit upon surfeit of love for their children, and then wondered how something could be so awesome and so utterly powerless."





    6. The New Yorker é uma revista cheia de escritores talentosos com liberdade para expressar o que sentem e para deixar as palavras fluir.Este pequeno texto foi publicado na revista em 2009 e eu encontrei-o num artigo do Huffington Post "The 10 Best Short Stories You've Never Read". E posso dizer agora que foi uma das 10 melhores pequenas histórias que já li.Conta a história de fadas que se encontram num momento da sua vida tão estranhamente humano: o cancro e a consequente morte de um dos seus [...]


    7. A beautiful story about loss, love and the mortality ! Haunting emotions and it summarizes perfectly the feeling that parents have when they see their children fighting cancer It broke my heart "She peered at the parents, imagining their hearts like machines, manufacturing surfeit upon surfeit of love for their children, and then wondered how something could be so awesome and so utterly powerless. A feeling like that ought to be able to move mountains, she thought, and then she wondered how she [...]


    8. A beautifully written short on sickness, love, heartbreak and hospitals. Chris does a wonderful job of entering his characters minds. I was thoroughly convinced this was written by a woman, and that she may have lost a child, until I saw the authors name at the bottom of the page.Vivid imagery, with well timed licks of bitter-sweet humour that balm the pain the prose evokes. Insight (without pretension) into the pains of child loss, and the impact on the relationship, told through lovely, quirky [...]


    9. The juxtaposition of the fairy world with a cancer ward gives us a new viewpoint with which to see the world of science. Real life needs hopes and dreams without which we would not strive to overcome our trials. Sometimes it's better to be 'away with the fairies' than to engage with the sadness and hardship of human life and death. All this and so much more, presented with humour, warmth and a hospital environment we can believe in, wrapped in the guise of a short story.


    10. A very good short story that speaks of life, marriage, illness from the stand point of fairies. But the death was that of a human child. And thus, this book is so human! It's beautifully written and worth of a read. 4 stars.
