The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne Valente

Diving in the Bahamas. Surrounded by warm clear water. Fish so beautiful and bright that your chest aches. Something vivid and alive. You are literally immersed in another world. That’s what Catherine Valente gives you.

Sure, you can sit on the surface and look down at the fish and the coral. You can stand on the beach and let the waves hit your ankles. But that doesn’t compare to letting go and jumping in – Surrounding yourself with something alien that speaks to that primal part of you.

There’s watching the pretty fish in the tank, and then there’s swimming with the sharks.
