Marissa and 7 other people liked Liza Gilbert's review of Divine Misfortune:
Divine Misfortune by A. Lee Martinez
"I've read several books by Martinez, and I've come to a personal conclusion. Reading Martinez is like getting an enormous swirl of cotton candy at the fair, and finding out that it has weird, funny, creepy, and scary carnie prizes spun within it...." Read more of this review »

“I have never known any distress that an hour's reading did not relieve.”
James K. Morrow, The Last Witchfinder

Audrey Niffenegger
“I don't know about you, but I'm kind of fed up with realism. After all, there's enough reality already; why make more of it? Why not leave realism for the memoirs of drug addicts, the histories of salt, the biographies of porn stars? Why must we continue to read about the travails of divorced people or mildly depressed Canadians when we could be contemplating the shopping habits of zombies, or the difficulties that ensue when living and dead people marry each other? We should be demanding more stories about faery handbags and pyjamas inscribed with the diaries of strange women. We should not rest until someone writes about a television show that features the Free People's World-Tree Library, with its elaborate waterfalls and Forbidden Books and Pirate-Magicians. We should be pining for a house haunted by rabbits.

(from the review of Kelly Link's Magic for Beginners in The Guardian)”
