The short stories that make up Flying to Yellow recreate the small, yet huge world of family relationships-- the nuances, the silences, the subtle exchanges between people together for the reasons that make a family- blood ties, love, necessity. They embody the unvoiced emotions that we experience as children, siblings, parents, and lovers-- the thin web of relationships which bind us together.
