    Love in the time of global warming, was my introduction to the woman the legend Francesca Lia Block. My co worker is OBSESSED with Block, so much so that she named her daughter after one of Blocks characters. I was lucky enough to meet and talk with Francesca Lia Block this past October at Wordstock. I can honestly say she is one of the sweetest persons I have had the pleasure of meeting. After I gave her my card she promised to connect. AND SHE DID!! Little ol me was delighted. So here are my thoughts.
    Love in the time of global warming is a retelling of Homer’s The Odyssey. A tale I still have yet to read, I know shame on me right. Well I didnt need to know anything about it. The story starts off when an earthquake basically destroys the world but with some CRAZY luck Pen our MC survives only to loose her whole family and not to mention all of her friends. After weeks of being alone she is forced out of her home and is guided by a stranger. He gives her a van and a map he tells her she can find her family. So she embarks on an adventure. Along the way Pen meets Hex. Pen is very attracted to Hex, he gets her to try a little punch which makes you higher than a kite and they end up loosing a good chunk of time. They manage to leave and meet a few other characters. Ez, and Ash. Ez and Ash accompany Pen and Hex in search of Pen’s family. Along the way it seems Ez and Ash fall in love with each other.
    Ive heard from others how lyrical Block’s writing is. How recognizable her style is. Im not sure about all that being this was my first book what I can say is the writing was magnificent. The world after the earth shaker was so vivid in my mind. The story was not what I expected more than once I was caught off guard. I do have a few questions that perhaps for Block should we ever cross paths again. I do have to say I was greatly inspired by Hex’s tattoo. So much so that its on the list of tattoos to get this year. What is it you ask well. “Non sum qualis eram” Im not what I once was. If that doesnt describe me I dont know what does.
