Color beams at us from the everyday, but within each of the ten million shades are hidden our best and worst stories.
Colors is a collection of lush short stories about the many different shades that make up our lives. Berardini guides us through a spectrum of vignettes, weaving inspiration from Calvino's Invisible Cities and Bowie's Sound and Vision, arriving at color's fundamental intersection with who we are and how we live.
