"Landvik strings the escapades into a playful and poignant narrative, even as a backdrop of Ku Klux Klan violence and Depression-era hardship keeps the fairy tale in check." - PW

Rated of 5
in time, becomes a piece of you.
One thing I could say about this wonderful author is that all her novel are crafted greatly to become a part of you; all the character's pains, joy and everything become yours.
She creates lovable characters, a great plot, and an important moral.
The reason why I don't give this book a five even though its great is it just doesn't have the intense awe factor that, say, Vanity Fair or Pride and Prejudice does.
However it is still a wonderful, charming book, that will remain in your heart long after you close it.
Writing and theater were Lorna Landvik's twin passions when she
was growing up in her home town of Minneapolis, Minnesota. After graduating from
high school, she and her best friend traveled in Europe, settling in Bavaria
where they supported themselves as hotel chamber maids and English tutors. When
she returned to the States, Landvik briefly attended the University of Minnesota
before moving to San Francisco, where she performed stand-up and improvisational
comedy. Another move took her to Los Angeles, where she worked as a stand-up
comic at the Comedy Store and The Improv, supplementing her income with a
variety of temp jobs--including one at the Playboy Mansion ("I felt like
Margaret Mead studying a secret society") and working for Atlantic Records.
