Jitterbug Perfume

Wow this is an amazing book!!!! like i've only read a bit
of it but its sooooooo good!

here's and excerpt:

"The beet is a melancholy vegetable, the one most willing
to suffer. You can't squeeze blood out of a TURNIP...
The beet is the murderer returned to the scene of the
crime. The beet is what happens when the cherry finishes
with the carrot. The beet is the ancient ancestor of the
automn moon, bearded, buried, all but fossilized; the dark
green sails of the grounded moon-boat stitched with vains
of primordial plasma; the kite string that once connected
the moon to the Earth now a muddy whisker drilling
desperatly for rubies."

and another

"An old Ukranian proverb warns, "A tale that begins with a
beet will end with the devil."
That is a risk we have to take."

read it... its awesome!

love stella
