I’ll have more to say about this book later, I think, but right now I will comment that a story which is at its heart about lust for life is exactly what I needed to read.
Also, I would have guessed, I think, that this was an older book (it was published in 1997). Something about its style is different than a recently-published book would be. Can’t quite put my finger on what, thought.
Next up: Baba Yaga’s Assistant by Marika McCoola & Emily Carroll.
