The lovely Alex of Randomly Yours, Alex has posted a most wonderful review of Midnight and Moonshine. And it made me cry, just a little, coz I’ve felt that our gorgeous book, over which Lisa and I lavished such love and attention and effort, had sort of, well, disappeared into the void. But this, oh, this has made me very happy.
This book. Oh, this book.
It took me a few months to read this collection, this mosaic novel. This is no reflection on the quality of the book. Well, actually it is, but not the way you might think. See, I’d read a story, and then I’d be forced to close the book, sigh, and stare into space in order to wallow in the beauty of the prose. And then I’d have to go read something else, because (like with me and Gwyneth Jones’ Bold as Love series) sometimes too much beauty is painful and you need a break.
First off, look at that cover. Is she not glorious? are the colours not soothing and enticing? Created by the awesome Kathleen Jennings (who chronicles the saga of its production on her blog), I would absolutely have this on my wall. LOVE.
The rest, she is here.
