And speaking of books that are awesome

I just finished Liquor, by Poppy Z. Brite. I’ve been following her LJ, docbrite, for a while — among other things, it’s my New Orleans reality check of choice — so I was really hoping I’d like Liquor, and boy, did I. Her ear for dialogue is pitch-perfect, her characters are vivid and real. I’m glad there are more books of hers for me to catch up on, too.

    One of my friends loves Liquor; I’ve yet to read it.

    I loved it too, and was so hoping she might make an appearance at ALA so I could get the new sequel and have her sign it.

    She is glorious fantastic. I’m a huge fan of all her writing; instant trip to the Big Easy in a few short lines.
