In a new review of So Lucky just out in the New York Times, Amal El-Mohtar says:
“Nicola Griffith’s So Lucky is a compact, brutal story…fast-paced as a punch in the face… So Lucky is beautifully written, with a flexible, efficient precision that embodies the protagonist’s voice and character… It’s also welcome and wonderful to see a book that shows queer women dealing with the aftermath of divorce and the tangled difficulties of turning deep friendship into long-distance romance. And Mara is frequently terrible, which I appreciated more than I can easily say. I’m hungry for depictions of women who make bad decisions and wrestle with the consequences, who shed prejudice and learn compassion, who are more than aspirational figureheads.”

Well deserved. I’ve just finished reading So Lucky…I still need to transcribe my own review, but it blew me away. You’ve outdone yourself…and considering what you’ve already written, that’s quite a feat.
@3:48 Thanks. It was an interesting challenge. I’m glad it’s done, even more glad readers seem to be enjoying it.
