Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

The Hearing Trumpet

The Hearing Trumpet - Leonora Carrington, Pablo Weisz Carrington I LOVE this book. Someday I will write a proper review, but words truly fail me in trying to describe how magical and important this book is to me. Leonora Carrington is not just a genius painter, she is a genius writer. The magical, gender-fluid, sacred deity perfection of this book fills my soul with joy and hope every time I read it. I so wish I could live in a world constructed by Leonora Carrington, full of wolf-headed princesses and underworld Goddess magic, all within the vision of a deaf old lady who really loves Lapland.
