Breaking sugar

" In “Breaking Sugar”, arguably the single most tender and beautiful story in the collection, breaking a sugar cube with a hammer in the darkness, in order to release a violet burst of light, is used as a metaphor for sex, for reasonably violent physical contact, which releases a different kind of truth than the standard, spiritual, kind."

Found this in the Net when I googled "A.L.Kennedy Breaking Sugar", it's a short story I read today, I wanted to share it with you all, I just loved it. The book is called "Original Bliss".
