"In the spell-like, poetic fiction of Thaisa Frank, the fantastic is never far from the ordinary: her characters glimpse other worlds in their rear-view mirrors, receive postcards from long-dead friends, and take lovers who literally glow in the dark, their mustaches filaments, their pubic hair incandescent. Call it 'domestic magical realism, 'call it the work of a West Coast I.B.Singer, it's fiction that 'packs an emotional punch that will leave the reader gasping.'"¿San Francisco Chronicle

Review: A Brief History of Camouflage

User Review  - Paul Sonnenberg - Goodreads

I love looking at first lines of fiction. But this writer just tries too hard to be interesting, both in her first lines at in subsequent writing. Every main character doesn't need to be quirky, or pithy. Read full review
