The Book of Love by Kelly Link

Staff Pick

After over two decades of dominating the short story field, Kelly Link has published her first novel, and it is magnificent--massive, lovely, and decadent, featuring a cast of weird characters I instantly fell in love with: four terrifyingly awkward and realistically cruel teenagers come back from the dead, not entirely sure how they died in the first place, whose experiences play out on the various registers of sad, funny, sad-funny, and funny-sad. There's also small-town Americana, fairy tales, myths, romance, sex, queerness, magic, death, and uncanny modernity; Link has gone from gut-punching short stories to weaving the best kind of long novel, one that thoroughly delights in its wide scope and expansiveness.
