A wonderfully fun and poetic book! And of course, it's about a librarian.

Evocative and poetic use of language. Author is clearly well-educated in classical myth/legend and uses that knowledge to create a new fable. Since I read it as a novel, it could have been edited a bit more tightly to lessen some of the repetition, but as it is, each chapter can be read as a short story.

This is an unbelievably beautiful book - the author has a passion for language. The imagery he creates is exceptional and magical.
Easily the best book I've read all year.
