A quiet but powerful book

by jayme on Jan 17, 2008

One of my favorite things about Howe's writing, particularly present in this book, is to make the everyday and the ordinary magical. This does not mean "happy ending," however. Howe investigates the darker side of fairy tales and the mystical or confounding of the day to day. Her language is spare, but it shimmers.
