Solomon's beautiful novella weaves together a moving and evocative
narrative that imagines a future created from the scars of the
past. Highly recommended for those interested in sf or fantasy that
draws upon the legacies of colonialism and racism to imagine
different, exciting types of futures. -- "Booklist, Starred
With shades of Hans Christian Andersen, Ursula Le Guin, and Lois Lowry, plus inimitable explorations of difficult social interrelationships, Solomon's short tome is, indeed, a deep read.-- "Indie Bound"
