Critic Reviews

"Johnson's language is beautiful, her descriptions of setting visceral, and her characters compellingly drawn." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Johnson would fit quite comfortably on a shelf with Karen Russell, Erin Morgenstern and others who hover in the simultaneous state of being both "literary" and "fantasy writers." - Shelf Awareness

The river Bank Kij Johnson

A very good book I was a bit unsure about the wind in the Willow's with a female mole and rabbit but it was completely right and followed on from the original perfectly.
