Staff Reviews

Frame is one of those authors whose popularity ebbs and flows, but her talent is constant. I love the way she plays with language, perception, and perspective in Scented Gardens, which tells the story of three family members robbed of their senses in more ways than one. Full of memorable characters, allegories, and imaginary insect friends, this book is like nothing you've read before.
