Drat! I was trying to remember Redemption in Indigo at Fourth Street, because I wanted to mention the way Lord uses the familiar cadences and structure of a folktale to draw her readers in. The reader's experience mirrors the protagonist's as she negotiates familiar village life...before things get weird.

But, natch, the discussion moved much too fast for me to look anything up in the midst of it. *g*
(Growing Up Weightless)++;

Maybe I should put Heat of Fusion on my bed to read over the next year once I finally finish Catherynne M. Valente's Ventriloquism...
Feel better soon.
