Girl With Oars & Man Dying is not a story at all. It is not written. It is not about a girl and her father. It is not about a girl and her brother. It is not about their father chopping wood.

This is one of my favorite reads of this year. Truly. It's beautiful in every conceivable way.

It's a novel that will break your heart, that'll change your heart, reshape your life. Inside these pages are words. Only words. But those words construct worlds even as it dismantles other ones.

It's a fairytale, a prayer, a song. It's everything and it's nothing.

Most of all, it's beautiful and it will carry your heart through the clouds.

In girl with oars & man dying, JA Tyler tells a story that isn't a story. It's a story that's more like a reflection.
