Check the Clip File here to read an interview with author Nina LaCour. It's such a rare and pleasant thing to request a book for review with some reluctance (for example, the plot sounds appealing but there's a risk that if it's mishandled the book will be not just bad but awful) and have your highest expectations for what it could be blown completely clear of the skyline. And it's similarly rare to read a novel that contains passages that felt like they could have been lifted from my notebook, or my dreaming self. The Disenchantments was like that. Less than fifty pages in I wanted to phone people and recommend it. Not specific people, just open the phone book and start calling. So I wangled the opportunity to sit at the feet of the master for a moment (via e-mail) and pester her with questions. Check it out.
