From Barnes & NobleWindling is best known for her editorial eye, and for good reason: She manages the difficult trick of finding writing both literate and immediately accessible to present us. Given this novel, it would be a pity if she were known only for that. Clear-eyed, lyrical, thoughtful, and yes, accessible, this work, about the gift -- the many hidden gifts -- a poet's mentor drops into her already complicated and conversely empty life, isn't one to shock you into thinking about things in a different way; it lulls you, and rewards you for the time. Highly recommended -- reminiscent of the best of de Lint.
