    First, I didn t know Karen Joy Fowler had written so many books.Second, this one is as different from the only other one I ve read by her, We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves as it s possible to be leading me to think her repertoire is appealingly eclectic.Third, it s fantastic, especially if you like 1 quirkiness, lots of humour2 picaresque sort of it s episodic and adventuresome at least 3 historical fiction, with4 a...
