St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves was a great pick for my book club this month! It’s getting four stars, though, instead of five, because I found it similar to Kelly Link’s Pretty Monsters, but I enjoyed Pretty Monsters more. This collection was pretty amazing, in spite of that. I enjoyed the very calm surreality of it, the way crazy things happened as though they were entirely normal. It’s an effect that I sometimes try to achieve in my own writing and don’t often succeed. Also, the vocabulary of these stories is so precise and sophisticated! I mean, really, who’d ever expect to find the word “hoary” in a book more than once? I noticed it at least three times. 🙂 Well done!
