On Our Shelves (as of this morning) Published:
Dalkey Archive Press, 9/1997
With a plot set to make you puke due to the odd (great!) maneuvers it takes, The Jade Cabinet by Rikki Ducornet is an absolute wonder. Ibis mummies are crushed for fertilizer, two of the main characters are befriended by Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carrol)and mythology 'n relics a plenty. I am lucky to have had this book recommended to me.
