Karen Joy Fowler’s list of 6 favorite books about ‘almost magical’ women

Loved this list by Karen Joy Fowler of “6 favorite books about ‘almost magical’ women” which included books by Maxine Hong Kingston, Michelle Cliff, Nicola Griffith, Megan Mayhew Bergman, Brian Doyle, and Get in Trouble:

“All best-of lists should close with the amazing Kelly Link. Her stories are the most overtly fantastical on this list. She makes us believe. I’ll spotlight “I Can See Right Through You,” “Light,” and “The Summer People.” I’d include “Origin Story” if protagonist Bunnatine weren’t too completely magical to fit my stated theme.”

—Novelist Karen Joy Fowler is the author of The Jane Austen Book Club and We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves. Her short-story collection Black Glass was recently re-released.
