My Review

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


I recently had the privilege of embarking on an enchanting literary journey through Laury A. Egan's "The Black Leopard's Kiss & The Writer Remembers," a unique duet of linked novellas that seamlessly blend magical realism with echoes of Virginia Woolf's "Orlando." As part of the virtual book tour sponsored by iRead Book Tours, this captivating experience invited me to traverse the intricate corridors of an aging writer's mind.


Egan's narrative is a tapestry of swirling structures, interwoven narratives, and warped time periods that delve into the treacherous nature of memory. The central character, Sidonie Ross, bravely returns to her past, illuminating the shadows of her half-remembered childhood and exploring the complexities of volatile relationships. The emotional thorns of shame, guilt, disappointment, betrayal, and rejection resurface like echoes from the past.


"The Black Leopard's Kiss & The Writer Remembers" is a masterclass in storytelling, with Egan's prose capturing the profound themes of memory and self-discovery. This review aims to invite readers to join this exploration of memories, emotions, and the rich complexity of human experience that Egan skillfully unfolds in her novellas.
