The Devil Spreads His Own Ugly Light
I'm reading Isabella Moon in the above picture, dressed in my usual reading outfit. Seriously, this is a great book -- spellbinding, scary, and fun. I'd give a plot outline, but why the hell would I do that when you guys should go buy it? I love the characters, their complications and sadnesses, their secret and public lives, the intersections. Let's face it -- what's life without some scary intersections? I was reading it as I was getting my hair done, and one of the patrons of the salon said, That book looks really good. And she is right. Laura is a rare combination for a practioner of the literary arts -- a deeply kind person and a great writer. And really good looking. Like I said, rare as hell. Check out her blog in my links -- and the website for her novel is amazing.
