The Museum Of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman

Another beautifully written and poignant book to sink yourself into, Alice Hoffman once again weaves a tale of romance, tragedy and release. I love her books so much, and although some of you have probably figured out from reading all her books this year, I do have favourites, this is one of her new releases and shows once again that she is a powerful story teller. 251 more words

Alice Hoffman's Return to Magical Realism

Alice Hoffman returns to the fascinating landscape of contemporary magical realism in Faithful, where the world is defined by unseen forces. This novel expresses the universal truths that Hoffman has been tracking throughout her large body of work—tragedy isn’t preceded, guilt can fester and consume its host, and often there is no remedy for loss. 552 more words

Faithful by Alice Hoffman


On one hand, this story is clearly written by a practiced writer–someone who keenly understands the mechanics and does it well. But, and here’s the other thing: in my view, there are 2 types of books: ones that give you room to expand on the world once you’re done reading it and those that neatly close all of the gaps and clean things up nicely. 107 more words
