About Elizabeth Conall

There's the poet and the beader and the third-wave feminist,
And the queer white atheist—I've got zir on the list!
The listener to Celtic and Janelle Monáe and P!nk,
The redhead gray-A woman who just wants people to think,
The square-dancing social democrat who knows ze's very shy,
Who doesn't Irish dance but would rather like to try,
Who critiques TV by writing what ze'd really like to watch,
Who fears that everything ze does is something of a botch,
And that singular anomaly, the lady novelist—
I don't think ze'd be missed—I'm sure ze'd not be missed!

Reviews

Review by: Alex Brett on July 04, 2013 :
I am absolutely in love with all of this. The beautiful way you've woven the herbs in; the believable characters; the world-building, which you do brilliantly in a tiny number of words; how *vivid* it all is, and how scent and hearing are important. I *loved* the knowing, loving, multi-layered skewering of tropes; I can't think of anything I *didn't* love.

Thank you both!
