« The figurative art of E.J. Taylor | Main | Julie Phillips Interview »

April 02, 2007


This is wonderful news! All three books, and their authors, richly deserve the honor. We highly, highly recommend each one of the winning books to Endicott readers -- especially Catherynne Valente's delicious book, of course, since it is rooted in folklore and fairy tales.

Both Valente and Jackson manipulate language, imagery, and story structure in exhilarating ways, and it's good to see such innovative works given this kind of recognition. The Julie Phillips biography of Alice Sheldon/James Tiptree Jr., too, is a terrific read.

Wow!!! Both of those books sound wonderful. Will definitely have to look into picking both of these up!

And Catherynne has a second volume of her Orphan's Tales coming out this year...and I can't wait. She seems to have an endlessly innovative imagination.

I've already pre-ordered the second volume of the Orphan's Tales. In the Night Garden is a sumptuous feast of language, imagery, and myth!
