The usual brilliance (no wait, RADIANCE!!) that I expect from Cat Valente. Thrilled to get a first look at what is her first adult novel in quite a few years (as much as I love her Fairyland books for young readers). Alternate history, 1920s space exploration, and a space-noir mystery surrounding the missing daughter of a famous director, all written with Valente typical flair for language. The novel is formatted through Hollywood gossip columns, movie scripts, and quite a few other engaging mediums. Wonderful!
