Review of The Tree of No by Sandy Florian

Here's a fine analysis of Sandy Florian's The Tree of No (Action Book, 2009) by Robert Savino Oventile published in Jacket:

"As a reader of the King James Bible and of John Milton’s Paradise Lost, I never anticipated a contemporary author would, by reverse-engineering those works, simultaneously delineate anew their imaginal worlds and break into a realm of imaginative thought so singularly her own. But I had yet to read Sandy Florian’s The Tree of No." (That's the intro paragraph)

Few books have struck me like Sandy's second book. She totally spellbound me when I first heard her read it. And this is a good review.
