"Jennifer Stevenson is
my goddess. In this book, trash is power. Trash Sex Magic
is a springtime bacchanalia of beautiful, wild women, magic trees
and sexy menlove it!"
Nalo Hopkinson, author of The Salt Roads
"It was a proverb of the
16th Century: On Hallowmass Eve troll notte thy broomstick bye
ye caravan park, for thou wottist notte who maye mount thereon.
I had paid it little heed since learning it years ago, and planned
to read this grand book one chapter at a time. I'd scarcely begun
the second when I fell under the author's spell."
Gene Wolfe, author of Knight
"It's to Chicago what Mysteries
of Pittsburgh is to Pittsburgh and A Winter's Tale is to New York
a winning, touching, open-eyed love letter but with trash,
sex, and magic too. Unusual and wonderfully done."
John Crowley, author of The
This funny and sexy debut novel is
about family and kinship, mothers and daughters, homecomings and
never leaving home at all. It's a tender, raunchy, sprawling, exuberant,
radiant magical love story like nothing you've read before.
Kelly Link, author of Stranger
"This just absolutely rocks. It's lyrical, it's weird and it's sexy in a very funky way. Trash Sex Magic is full of people you would maybe be afraid to meet in real life, but once you've met them fictionally you are damn sorry you can't at least have a beer with them.
—Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife
