This is one of the most enchanting books I have had a chance to read in ages. I'm not normally one for magical realism, but this is something special. I personally am a huge fan of the Golden Age of Hollywood, and find the behind the scenes stories to be particularly fascinating. So I am absolutely intrigued and drawn in by this book, which presents that kind of narrative with a magical and dark twist. I particularly am impressed by the author's ability to interweave the realities of the era with the more fantastical elements in a way that keeps everything rooted and believable, and in so doing heightens the emotional stakes and impact. I truly feel that THIS is what magical realism or historical fantasy should be. It doesn't undercut, mask, or minimize the period being portrayed, it adds to it and makes it richer and more interesting without compromising its integrity. I cannot be more excited to get my hands on a copy and see where it all goes.
