28. A Brood of Foxes by Kristin Livdahl. Kristin's first book comes from Aqueduct Press's "Conversation Pieces" series. What I love most about this novella is that it has absolutely no anxiety about defining itself. It's a story about identity where some of the characters have both animal and human identities which shift without warning; it has elements of a fable or fairy tale, but the coming-of-age here is more subtle and less symbolic, and is sprinkled with sf-nal elements; it's sort of an environmental story, but even in that aspect it's more about how we hurt each other in backhanded, unintentional ways. I've known Kristin for a while, now, and I've been in a critique group with her for a few years, so I've read a lot of her stuff; and I feel like this novella and the stuff I've seen from her recently signals an exciting new stage in her writing. A Brood of Foxes is really excellent stuff, and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
