Happy Monday, everyone!
I wanted to talk about the novelette, Tomorrow We Dance by Tara Maya. (Tara didn't ask me to mention this as part of any favor. I volunteered to do this because I think it's a fantastic read, and I hope you'll give it a chance.)
Tomorrow We Dance tells the story of a young boy who becomes a follower of the Bone Whistler, a man who claims he can bring back the dead. The boy is willing to risk everything for this dream, and it's possible that he could lose it all.
That alone is a compelling and exciting story, but Tara Maya doesn't stop there. Tomorrow We Dance also revitalizes literary history. Reading this work reminded me of the strange addiction people have to the classic fairy tales and how they work. This contemporary story makes you see the classics in a different light and somehow manages to unify this long lineage of storytelling while also transforming it into something new. You'll feel yourself propelled forward and backward at the same time.
