About Me Review Policy.

A Corner of White Author: Elliot Baranski lives in Bonfire, the Farms, the Kingdom of Cello — where seasons roam, the Butterfly Child sleeps in whitf glass jar, and bells warn of attacks from dangerous Colours.

They are worlds apart — until a crack opens up between them; a corner of white — the slim seam of a letter. A mesmerising story of two worlds; the cracks between them, the science that binds them and the colours that infuse them. A crack opens up between these two worlds, and a letter slips through.


BOOK REVIEW: ‘A Corner of White’ by Jaclyn Moriarty

Madeleine, a teenage girl living in Cambridge, finds whitee letter and writes back … thinking her correspondent is just a boy with a vivid imagination. Both Madeleine and Elliot are suffering loss and confusion and the pangs of first love.

Both Madeleine and Elliott feel very alone. Their letters build a bridge between them and jaclhn world, and, in strange and unexpected ways, help each other make sense of the mysteries of their lives. Morirty were some lines which sung with such truth and beauty that I wanted to learn them by heart.

Such a perfect sentence, saying so much with so little. Although the secondary world makes it a fantasy novel, the book is without most of the trappings that we usually associate with fantasy.

There are no quests, or magical beasts, or battles between good and evil. Similarly, our own world is infused with strangeness and magic.

There are troubling absences, inexplicable coincidences, and odd disruptions to what we would consider normal. I think Jaclyn may have invented a whole new genre.

Fantastical magic realism, perhaps? Comments Arial commented on Jun Lovely review, thanks for sharing.
