A friend of mine, Ellen Emerson White, just came up with a very, very cool idea, a gesture that Obama could and should make to make the world a better place. It makes such sense that I’m amazed no one has come up with it before. It’s simple, elegant, necessary.
“…a life story wittily and bracingly told: brave, forthright, illuminating, passionate, rueful, and celebratory. If you melded Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home (2006) with Aldiss’s The Twinkling of an Eye (1998) and Delany’s The Motion of Light in Water (1988), you might come up with a similar tale of a wild girl with literary sensibilities.”
— Paul Di Filippo, Asimov’s, July 2008
Wow. Bechdel, Aldiss *and Delany. Fabulous. And the cherry on top? Kelley’s collection, Dangerous Space, is reviewed glowingly six pages later. Happy day in the Eskridge-Griffith household.
