New Old World
on March 09, 2017
This is a brilliant, absorbing, and moving work of fiction. Stowell's story of a 40-something woman struggling to come to terms with her past and her future rings true to the experiences of women I know. The style and narrative construction are innovative, but they work—they draw you into the protagonist's mind and soul. When I finished, I had to sit for quite a while reflecting on my own life. Highly recommended, especially for those willing to let fiction challenge their life choices.
