“Cook’s prose is often electric, especially the dialogue.” – Kirkus Reviews
Kak doesn’t mean to go backwards in grief. She tells herself to start at denial. It’s logical. It’s the beginning. Normal people start there and pay the price.
But Kak isn’t a normal person. She jumps the line, past denial, anger, bargaining and depression, to the end: acceptance. In doing so, she launches herself into a reverse journey through grief that will speed her toward destruction.
