Adolescent Ivy’s great-aunt Maeve wrote the beloved novel IVORY APPLES with the help of the muses — supernatural beings that enter Ivy’s life and bring desperate, dangerous occult seekers there as well. Goldstein veils female bildungsroman with imagination and myth in another assured modern fantasy reminiscent of her excellent 2011 modern fairy tale THE UNCERTAIN PLACES.

Cory Doctorow on PLURALISTIC is very excited about Daniel Pinkwater’s forthcoming ADVENTURES OF A DWERGISH GIRL.

IOW: this is a book with every single thing I love about Pinkwater novels. Reading Daniel Pinkwater – as a kid and as an adult – was hugely important to my development as a writer and a human being. Meeting another Pinkwater fan is always a sign that you are among good people.
