Erin Bow

Fantasy elevates ordinary and eternal problems of youth into stories via the language of myth. It turns “No one really knows me” into “I’ve got a secret identity.” It turns “I don’t understand why other people act the way they do” into “I’m trapped in a faerie realm.” It turns “my high school must have been built over the mouth of hell” into “my high school must have been built over the mouth of hell.”

...There are certain things in life that are glorious, and they are glorious for everyone. There are more that are hard, and they are hard for everyone. We like to see these things retold, but with dragons.

It turns “my high school must have been built over the mouth of hell” into “my high school must have been built over the mouth of hell.”

That article! It is one of the best things I've read in a some time. Except for her new novel which I also read this week and is AMAZING!
