Great story and awesome coverart!! I absolutely loved the convoluted tale of sisters, Eva and Iris, that begins in the late 1930's. I enjoyed Bloom's writing style and found it clever and fresh. This is a story filled with contradiction. The sisters collect people like souvenirs and they manage to form a happy mishmash family despite their habitual cons, lies, and deceit. The characters were likable but severely flawed. I hated them one minute and loved them the next. Overall, this is a winner for me.
