Valente, Catherynne M. -- Palimpsest

Dream-y, exquisite stream of prose that I didn't care about much. The central metaphor, or image -- is it a metaphor if you just declare it to be a magical law of reality? -- rubs me the wrong way, and I won't pretend the reasons aren't petty and personal. If you like wildly polyvalent female figures of power, the Orphan's Tales will do just as well as this.
