"In All the Birds in the Sky, Charlie Jane Anders darts and soars, with dazzling aplomb, throwing lightning bolts of literary style that shimmer with enchantment or electrons. She tackles profound, complicated questions, vast and insignificant as the fate of the planet, tiny and crucial as the vagaries of friendship, rocketing the reader through a pocket-sized epic of identity whose sharply-drawn protagonists come to feel like the reader s best friends. The very short list of novels that dare to traffic as freely in the uncanny and wondrous as in big ideas, and to create an entire, consistent, myth-ridden alternate world that is still unmistakably our own, all while breaking the reader s heart into the bargain I think of masterpieces like The Lathe of Heaven; Cloud Atlas; Little, Big has just been extended by one." - --Michael Chabon (Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay)<br \><br \>Two crazy kids, one gifted in science, the other in magic, meet as children, part and meet again over many years. Will they find love? Will they save the world? Or will they destroy it and everyone in it? Read Anders lively, whacky, sexy, scary, weird and wonderful book to find the answers. ---- Karen Joy Fowler (We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves)
