I love this book so far. The language in both the dialogue and the narration is fantastic. It just pops.
And there's a lot of really meaty subject matter going on- Revenge, love, growing old, legacies... Awesome.

Also, I promise that my endorsement of this book is not affected by the fact that Graywolf is publishing the US edition in March 2012. Honest. This book is straight legit. I am, however, super excited that we're going to be publishing the US edition in March 2012.


The end of this book was great. It's this huge, building montage. The action is happening and not happening, and throughout the whole thing is a tinge of regret.

Regardless of who is publishing this book, CITY OF BOHANE is probably one of my favorite books that I've ever read.
