Published to wide acclaim in early January, the affecting Y
is a novel of myriad pleasures, the most obvious being Celona’s
sensitive, psychologically complex conception of Shannon, a character
who refuses to leave one’s consciousness.
In one of those rare places people
still come to browse for books, they are encased in glass. Touched by the
hands of artists, they suspend like paper time capsules in the atrium
of the Cincinnati Public Library for Bookworks 13,
organized by Cincinnati Book Arts Society.
