The Burning Glass by Helen Norris

The burning glass of the title of Helen Norris' third book of short fiction is an archaic expression for the magnifying glass, and the metaphor is entirely appropriate. For a burning glass not only makes small things large, but focused long and precisely enough, it sets the magnified object on fire. And indeed, these nine superb stories are illuminated by the incandescence of words-and hearts-set ablaze.
