In False Mermaid, Minnesota native Erin Hart takes the Irish myth of the selkie (a seal that can shed its skin to become a human, and put it back on to return to the sea) and spins a web of characters around it. Each story thread hints at the legend, though Hart never resorts to creating a trite metaphor.
