Some books are just perfect.
This is one of them. Every note it plays rings clear, every character is mad and brilliant and real. The book sings and dances. It’s alive and beautiful.
A central concept is that of shadows, detaching from the body and living in ways that their owners can’t or won’t. Well, the shadows of this book walk out and dance for the reader. They perform their magic and then fade back into the book, leaving memory behind.
