Psyche in a Dress



YA novel by Francesca Lia Block

I hardly feel equal to ever writing any reviews for Francesca Lia Block's books. How do you write something that does justice to her divine poetry and prose?

Psyche in a Dress is a poetry novel about a young woman trying to find her place. Filled with Francesca Lia Block's trademark mix of magic and reality, and glowing words and images, it sweeps you along for an emotional ride. The characters are beautiful and amazingly talented, but wounded, and need to find their place in the world. All are on their own journeys. I think we can all find a little bit of ourselves in her characters, and all long to find that magic in everyday life that her books evoke!

I can't truly describe it, you have to experience it for yourself.
