The fine prose delights and the honesty of the writing shines through.

About Alcina Faraday
Alcina Faraday is a scientist, businesswoman and stepmother who writes literary fiction about the redeeming power of love and the disturbing possibilities of modern scientific reality. Her Spiral Wound Trilogy Beauty, Love and Justice, These Modern Girls and The Commodity Fetish follows a cultured rabble of unhinged, uncool, reality-averse GenX/Y outliers as they seek success and heroism, survive squalor and indignity, have a few laughs, and mostly emerge relatively unscathed from the moshpit of modern life in Paris, London and Lisbon. Alcina lives in London and Devon with her engineer husband and a small colony of palmate newts.
