Likewise, “Orphan Black,” though obviously female-centric, does not make bank on the “revelation” that women can be good and bad, timid and violent, strong and susceptible Just Like Men. Instead, it plays with the nature of family with the same dexterity it brings to the definition of identity. What is a mother, a child, a sister, a friend, and what is expected of and owed to each?


This is my all time favourite books. It’s utterly wonderful, sensual and exquisite in every way. The author is Xanthe Walter who is just absolutely amazing, this book I have read 10 times, that’s not including how many times I’ve gone back to read a certain scene, can’t tell you what scene but it is beautiful.
I highly recommend it.

Aw! Thank you!
