By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

Mourning Raga (A Dominic Felse Whodunnit)

Mourning Raga (A Dominic Felse Whodunnit) - Ellis Peters Literary theory, among other things, has made me very twitchy about depictions of India in western books. I was worried about this one, despite my deep affection and respect for Peters. I do feel that Peters honestly respected the Indian culture and if she made generalizations they were regional rather than cultural. Still, her books set in Shropshire remain my favorites. [Mar. 2010]
