Alice Hoffman, |
Green Angel is more prose poem than novel, although there is a typically twisty-turny-quirky Hoffman plot that satisfies deeply. The deft use of archetypal/fairy tale/mythological concepts resonates through the text on many levels. But language is the essence here: pure, poetic, lyrically luminous and unnervingly numinous.
This book is a sensual delight, a sweet and succulent literary morsel, a simple and lovely reading pleasure.
