I first saw Fates and Furies on our local morning news show. The book store owner was displaying some of the newest best books. I had no idea what it was about, just that it was popular. I added it to my holds list (I check out books from the local library electronically). It just recently became available.
This is a different kind of book. It takes work. It takes concentration. The words are beautiful-poetic-but overally written. My mom asked me what my book was about and all I could say is "it's about these two married people and their life together".
