Swamplandia! by Karen Russell

slbit, January 1, 2012

Swamplandia pulls you into a world unlike any you've ever experienced. The main character is a young girl, and she's one of the strongest, most compelling girls I've encountered in recent fiction. The story is complete with a journey-quest, in which evil is a shadowy, constant presence.

Swamplandia! by Karen Russell

slbit, March 6, 2011

What a novel! Magic, surreal, a fairy tale from a hidden world.
Karen Russell creates a homage to life - the beautiful, brave, ghastly, gritty totality of life.
Ava and her red Seth will be in my head for a long time. Maybe we'll hear more about the Bigtrees?
