A gloriously delectable literary "implosion," a novel with as many meanings as a seven-layer cake, LARQUE ON THE WING" is superb. Who is LARQUE? 40-year-old menopausal, midlife cris-ing, wife, mother, daughter, craft artist, breadwinner, self-sufficient...but LARQUE is also grubby, mouthy, 10-year old loner Sky; and Lark, adolescent good-looking male; and Virtuous Woman, picture-perfect, butter-wouldn't-melt-in-her-mouth, cynosure of her Mother's eye. LARQUE is also: long-time creator of thought forms she calls doppelgangers (Tibetan mysticism terms them "tulpas"), serious artist-in-waiting...and a Self, in search of its identity. How can one woman be all this? Read LARQUE ON THE WING and you'll see.
Another "Best of 2014"!
