Publisher Series: Canongate's The Myths

Where Three Roads Meet: The day before the wedding, worried that as a female she will never be able to satisfy her wife, Iphis prays to the gods for a miracle. Needless to say, this is not what happens in Girl meets Boy. The book is divided into sections: In the second section, Imogen, Anthea sister, tries to deal with her fact that her sister is gay: My sister would be banned in schools if she was a book. Imogen, unfortunately, has co-workers such as these: Human species, self-patrolling, he says. Also, Anthea and her girlfriend Robin do something awesome.

The more I read her, actually, the more I love her.

I love her tenderness, her subtlety, her rawness, her humour and her warmth. I loved the way she explored gender in this story — the way we perceive it, the way others perceive it, the ingrained sexist practices that are still seen as natural by so many. I also loved the way she explored sexuality. Rhinoa was absolutely right: A nice bonus is the fact that the story is mostly set in Inverness, a city I love.

I really enjoyed revisiting familiar places as I read the book: I need to get my hands on: Binu and the Great Wall next. She had the swagger of a girl. She blushed like a boy.

She was as meaty as a girl. She was as graceful as a boy. She was as brave and handsome and rough as a girl. She was as pretty and dainty and delicate as a boy.

She made love like a boy. She made love like a girl. She was so boyish it was girly, so girly it was boyish, she made me want to rove the world writing our names in every tree. Tell me what it is, I say. I need to know it. I need to know the proper word. She looks at me for a long time. I can feel her looking right through my drunkness. Then, when she speaks, it is as if the whole look of her speaks.

Series: The Myths

The proper word for me, Robin Goodman says, is me. Posted by Ana S. Oh, I want this book! I want this book so much! I'd never heard of it before, and it just sounds so beautiful. And I'm so utterly in love with that last passage you shared!!! Another one I definitely have to pick up.

I love good treatments about sexuality! And I like that parenthetic conversation up there. This one sounds like it would be just as good if not better. Thanks for a great review! I'm so glad you enjoyed this too. It is such a beautiful book and I got my mum a copy for Mothers Day which I hope she gets around to soon. I haven't been to Inverness, but will have to plan a trip at some point.

I will be picking this up. Thanks again, for another wonderful review. That's another truly amazing review! That's another book that's immediately gne right to the top of my wishlist because of your review! I definitely want to read this one and i want to read it soon! I really need to read some of the Canongate Myth series. And it's been awhile now since I've read anything by Ali Smith. She can be a bit hit or miss with me sometimes but this does sound intriguing.

I really want to read this, but my library doesn't have it.

Wow, this review really touched a nerve - usurped first place on my to-read list. I beginning to think that you have excellent book radar built in. It sounds really good and I will also have to add it to my list.

Since I started visiting your blog, my TBR has grown as a fast rate! I added to the wishlist after Bart reviewed it I hadn't even heard of the Canongate myth series but I am definitely going to check it out. I've only read Jeanette Winterson's book from the Canongate Myth series but I saw that Michael Faber's name was on the list as well as Dubravka Ugresic's the latter I'm still looking for in its untranslated version.

I realllllly need to get my hands on this one as well. Thanks for the great review! Glad you liked it. I would like to have loved it more than I did, but it is still a great read. Now thanks to you, I'm adding another book onto my wishlist, again! I like that quote about the smile.

Sounds a bit different than my normal reading fare, but I might check it out sometime. Okay, now we're even, but who's keeping score. This is an amazing review and I am adding this to my TBR list. This is the first time I've heard of the Cannongate Myth series and I hope my library them! I'm sold on this! Now I have a question for you How did you know that this book was a retelling sort-of like Ovid's Metamorphoses?

I haven't read any of these myths I'm sad about my lack of knowledge in this area, but as I continue to read your blog I get educated a little bit more every day!! This sounds like a wonderful book. You do get back at me, don't you?! This one really grabs my attention.

I need off-beat right now. I have Binu and the Great Wall on my shelf! I've been wanting to read Girl Meets Boy too. It was pretty good. I am sad I can't find this in ebook form, which is my preference. It sounds like a book I would adore. This is a very beautiful review Nymeth.

I have never heard of the myth nor have i ever heard of Ali Smith. But considering I loved the sentences you posted from the book I am sure I'll love her writing. It's like poetry, almost. Could you have teased us anymore?? I'm trying to count how many times you told us "I wish I could tell you P Sounds like a complex and touching story. Interesting tidbit--I picked up Fun Home the other day and was surprised to find it in the lesbian fiction section of the bookstore?

I thought the book was more about the relationship with the father, or is the author gay? I have had this book on my wishlist for some time I also knew about the legality of sex between women in Victorian times; it was Queen Victoria who deemed it didn't exist because she couldn't imagine it herself. It sounds a beautiful book, I really liked the quotes you picked. Debi, glad you like it: D You'd enjoy this for sure! That whole section with Imogen's reaction to the news about her sister is like that, and I thought it worked really well. This is one of the best, I think. I'm really loving the series.

Oh, you have to go! It's such a beautiful area. P Ramya, hope you enjoy it as much as I did! I'm glad to have made you curious: Yes, you do need to read the series! It's awesome so far except for The Helmet of Horror, which I disliked strongly enough to decide it doesn't count: Julia, I hope you enjoy it!

I like to think I have a good one: Yes, yes you must: It's an excellent series! So many amazing authors contributed. Weight is another one of my favourites to date. What a great book.
