The Gracekeepers is next on my To Read list. Ms Logan’s short stories are marvelous, so I expect good things from this debut novel.
“Electrifying…Like Emily St John Mandel’s Station Eleven, The Gracekeepers circles the peculiar business of the culture humans make, and tries to understand why we would persist in the direst circumstances. From the flotsam of the washed-out world, ersatz elements are pulled together – a little King Arthur, some rustic paganism, evangelical kitsch – to make something that is, after all, beautiful…This is a novel of the liminal and the liquid, seeking new ways of living together and new forms of life in a world that humans have transformed almost beyond the possibility of our own survival. As with any good descent, there is danger, devilish glamour and a resurfacing into sunlit salvation.”–Guardian
