The characters in Among Angelic Orders are harassed by the distant and not-so-distant past, by the future, by this world and the next. They live their lives in a state of ambivalence, yearning for something they have lost, or are about to lose, while desperately clinging to what they have. These are stories of mischief, longing, confusion and loss, tempered by the random nature of mercy that rescues us from the certainty of our lives.
