Rescuing the Wicked Queen: Review of Helen Oyeyemi's Boy, Snow, Bird --- Laura K. Warrell | Numéro Cinq
With Boy, Snow, Bird, the author treads a well-worn path alongside novelists who give voice to the most notorious villains in the Western literary canon. But she distinguishes herself by weaving a tale that digs at the deeper, uglier roots of human behavior and culture so that we can see ourselves reflected in her story. The novel is as stunning, complicated and magical as the women it presents. ---Laura K. Warrell
