"A gorgeous, funny, melancholy, splendid romp through a post-apocalyptic wonderland in which hope and despair are indistinguishable, and the human spirit burns with the joy and rage of a thousand suns. The Candide of our #@$\*%?! age."-- Ken Liu, award-winning author of The Paper Menagerie and The Grace of Kings on The Past is Red"Valente's writing DNA is full of fable, fairy tale and myth drawn from deep wells worldwide." --New York Times on The Bread We Eat in Dreams "Valente [has a] gorgeous way with words and impressive genre flexibility as she moves from science fiction to fairy tale to comedic horror with her singular linguistic flair." --Booklist on The Future is Blue
