Amazing. Just as simple as retelling the Persephone myth to explain the monster that is the creative soul, and just as complex. Beautiful writing. Precise imagery. Fantastical arabesques of words casting uncanny shadows to ensorcel the reader's spirit.
Stumbled on this little gem few years ago and it's now always on my yearly must read list. It's a whimsical tale about a town that is plagued by February, who cast a permanent winter upon the area from his place high in the clouds. It also has The Girl Who Smells of Smoke and Honey too...
...so there's that.
