it was amazing

I've been hell-bent for a few years about how there should be a recognized Midwestern Gothic (a la Southern Gothic) genre, and Ligatures adds to that argument. Her depiction of rural Kansas shortly after a right-wing coup has taken over the United States is dead-on and terrifyingly close to current reality. Beautiful prose winds its way through this narrative of loss, grieving, and mysticism that brings to mind the early work of Barbara Kingsolver and Margaret Atwood.
