Among Others by Jo Walton was one of my favourite books last year. The voice of estranged teenager Mor — a lone twin in a new and austere private school — and her struggle to find some kind redemption through books makes for compelling reading. It is a haunting and unashamedly brainy novel.
I have been busy recommending left, right, and centre and so I'm really happy that Jo will be celebrating the release of the paperback edition of Among Others at Bakka Phoenix Books in my hometown Toronto at 3pm on Saturday February 25th. If you've read the book already, you won't want to miss it. And if you haven't, well, what are you waiting for...?
