flesh to bone reviewed in San Francisco Book Review

ire’ne lara silva’s flesh to bone received a glowing review from The San Francisco Book Review! Editor Tammy McCartney remarks:

The story “hunger” features a family of three: a daughter who can taste words and see their flowing colors, a son who dreams of hunger but rarely eats, and a mother who worries about her strange children….The following stories share similar elements: mysterious problems with magical solutions, all-consuming worry, heart-rending sadness, stories written upon the flesh…. silva infuses her prose with the lilting cadence of song. Interspersed with Spanish words, the stories flow over the reader’s tongue and embed themselves in the subconscious. 

You can read the entire review, along with reviews of other wonderful books, on The San Francisco Review website. Way to go, ire’ne!
