Dawn: Book One of the Xenogenesis Series (Xenogenesis #01) by Octavia E. Butler
Dawn: Book One of the Xenogenesis Series (Xenogenesis #01)

Jill Miller, October 23, 2014

I had been thinking about how tired I am of space monsters and evil aliens against whom humans must valiantly fight. Why can't someone write about an alien species in an interesting way? Why can't the aliens be friendly, mysterious, complex, confusing and maybe even loveable? Then I read Dawn. Bingo!

The Children's Book (Vintage International) by A S Byatt
The Children's Book (Vintage International)

Jill Miller, August 3, 2012

I will start by confessing that I love A. S. Byatt's writing beyond all reason. I love her intricate and lucid sentences. I love her concrete, lush, physical imagery. I love her large vision of the intertwinings of us humans and our lives. The Children's Book, in particular, made me want to make art, of any kind; made me want to know more about pre-WWI Britain; made me grateful that,as a woman, I live when I live and not earlier.
