How Clarissa Burden Learned To Fly Reviews


"In this novel by best-selling author Fowler (The Problem with Murmur Lee), past and present lives collide in magical and violent ways with surprising, liberating, and redeeming results. The colorful characters include an almost-angel, carnival dwarves, and anthropomorphic animals, and the result is folksy and sophisticated, and humorous yet at times grave and appalling, with the sins of the past clearly depicted. VERDICT A seductive and thoroughly satisfying read."--Library Journal
"In this magical, funny, at times heartbreaking book, Connie May Fowler has shown us that even a house fly can have a point of view. Compact and enchanting, yet achingly dark, it reminds me of the novels of Alice McDermott and Alice Hoffman that I love to read. Now Fowler gives us a mid-summer's night dream of her own!"

-Mary Morris, author of Revenge


"A huge-hearted, ebullient novel about ghosts, tragedy, love, redemption and one extraordinary woman's wild ride to self-discovery. Blazingly original, the remarkable Fowler breaks your heart, makes you believe in love, and whispers unbreakable truths about who we are really meant to be."

-Caroline Leavitt, author of Girls in Trouble
