A very cool novel
that's sort of about the Wizard of Oz but more about fantasy and child abuse and the American West--what a strange and interesting book--Geoff Ryman's Was. Ryman has a remarkable gift for writing characters that you care about in spite of their off-putting qualities. This isn't so much my kind of book as Lust, but it's really very good indeed.
