What People are Saying About This
"A quietly alluring mood piece that focuses on the twilight times when at dawn and dusk, Fletcher finds impressionistic images that Kiesler makes concrete. . . . Words and art coalesce into an invitation to readers to move beyond the page and into their own explorations of twilight." Kirkus Reviews
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Not very much to do with anything. Just talks about night and day.
This was a difficult book to place into a pathways themes since the books seems to promote mostly creativity and word choice. Personal feelings and growth can be applied to this book by viewing the book as more of an emotional experience and how the words can affect the feeling and mood of the sentence. The character isn't directly mentioned in the book but the reader knows that the character is still experiencing what the prose is saying. An unspoken character.
