Tender Morsels will be starred in The Horn Book!

Lookee!

UPDATED: Lookee here! From Deirdre F. Baker:
Lanagan’s poetic style and her masterful employment of mythic imagery give this story of transformation and healing extraordinary depth and beauty. The characters’ earthy folk dialect tethers Lanagan’s fantasy firmly to very real physical and psychic experience even as the lyrical narrative voice (“Morning came, sweet as new milk spilling up the sky, all dew and birdsong and bee-buzz”) intensifies its fairy-tale atmosphere. At the same time, Lanagan offers up difficult truths—and complicated, human characters—that are as sobering as they are triumphant.

Yay! Can't wait to read it! I'm going to need a juicy book to get my teeth into by the end of the year... I honestly think you're one of the most imaginitive, thought-provoking and deft writers in Australia. Ever. Keep up the great work!
