But there are tender bits.
Tender Morsels deals with rape, but it’s never actually explicit. What it does is suggest what happens, and your mind does the rest. But nothing is actually masked. Especially not the impact, physical and psychological, that this kind of violence has on Liga. I love that Margo Lanagan doesn't ever make us pity Liga. She makes our heart break for her, yes, and she makes us love her, and respect her, and wish her the very best.What's more, she will campaign for me: 'This is the book I will henceforth shove down the throats of people who dismiss fantasy, who dismiss YA.'
I seriously couldn’t have loved Tender Morsels more.
What's more, 40 people have dropped by to comment—I've never had that many comments, even when I asked people how to stop drinking. How do you do that, Nymeth? (Get the comments, I mean, not stop drinking. Tee-hee.)
