Olive Lemon, Revealed!

Have you ever put together a jigsaw puzzle without knowing the picture? If so, you'll have a pretty good approximation of the surreal trip through Olive Lemon's world. Catherine J. Gardner's imagery manages to be strange and impossible and at the same time very, very real. This is Gardner's quirky, dark fantasy in high form, and spoilers be damned, the ending will grab you by the metaphoric throat.

Order your own copy, now.

I think I'm going to cry - and a picture to boot. Everyone has been so, so nice.

Everyone's been giving this such great reviews! I have the same issue as Danielle, what with being on the other side of the world...
