Cat Valente is an author who cannot be described by mere adjectives, no matter how fulsome. She makes prose that is the literary equivalent of a multi-course, sumptuous meal, full of an interplay of flavors and narrative threads that need to be savored slowly. So while I haven't had the chance to read her latest book, Habitations of the Blessed
, I feel quite confident in declaring it preemptively awesome.
What is it about? I'm so glad you asked, because Ms. Valente has made a video to tell you.
Using her action figures. Naturally.
In conclusion, if that video didn't convince you, you should buy this book
so that she can write more of them and we can buy more of them in a happy, reciprocal cycle.
