it was amazing

An extraordinary novel by Jean Smith, my bandmate in Mecca Normal. I have always loved the flow, crispness and humour of her writing. Reading it recently, I came to appreciate it all over again. There is a beautiful mystery to passages like, “Once there was a soft glow of a flare sent, an amber fragment knocking out the sky. Then there was the darkness after too much light.” We follow Joelle and Claudine as the characters travel landscapes both geographic and emotional. Also a pleasure is Smith’s descriptive powers and attention to detail.
