    Story
    (95)

    In his stunning works. Charles de Lint has brought an entire imaginary North American city to vivid life: Newford, where magic lights the dark streets, myths walk clothed in modern shapes, and a broad cast of extraordinary people work to keep the whole world turning. At the center of it all stands a young artist named Jilly Coppercorn, with her tangled hair and paint-splattered jeans, whose paintings capture the hidden beings that dwell in the city's shadows.

    What did you love best about The Onion Girl?

    Her conviction to wanting others to know and experience that there is more to the world if you can move past your personal stumbling blocks and allow yourself to see it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not sure I have a favorite character, they are all colorful and have interesting attributes. I think the biggest role in the book belongs to the dreaming world, which is a fascinating place that I wish I could go.


    What about Kate Reading’s performance did you like?

    I love Kate Reading, ever since listening to her co-narrate the wheel of time series with Micheal Kramer. Her excellent voice acting skills really help in following the story as it moves from one characters point of view to another.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The world is as it is...but is it?


    Any additional comments?

    As Jilly emphatically points out in one part of the story that people are not born bad...this makes me want to know more about Del's back story which is never really discussed (not that I want to like or forgive him his deeds); but what made him the monster he was? and for that matter a little more on the Tatter Snake's issue would be interesting....
