Angel Food exposes the purest love between two people, a brother and sister. While there is a bevy of entertaining characters in this tale, it is the emotional journey of these two siblings that completely enraptured me. They encapsulate everything that it means to be human – even while one of them is decidedly not.
I definitely recommend this book!
Ms. Tuttle writes with utter command of nuance and of landscape, of desire and fear and sex and power. Yes, there is something Tarantino-ish in her voice, but there are also Tom Robbins and Matt Haig. Perhaps even a bit of Neil Gaiman's everyday magic and enchantment. I could not put this book in a category if you held a sword to my neck. I just know I loved every bit of it, every tequila and coffee and lust and love and anger and joy and bloody, fear-fueled page of it.
And I'm just going to say it- Brittany- we need a sequel. I'll just keep on rereading it until you write one. I do not want my time with this fantastical and yet, so extremely human family to end.
Don't just take my word for it. Buy the book and read it. And spread the word. Ms. Tuttle deserves a very wide audience. I think she'll get one.
It's the story of a special group of siblings who live on the run from angry angels. The story traipses and blazes across the country and straight through your assumptions about love, devotion, life, death, good and evil. The characters are deeply flawed in the best of ways and quickly become your own dysfunctional family as you hide out in an Airstream trailer with them. You want to slap them and to hug them; and you want them to win, whatever that may be.
Tuttle's voice is clear and unique. By turns hilarious, challenging, and moving. Often all at once. She writes with tongue firmly in cheek, one hand on the wheel and one hand on a semi-automatic rifle. Her attention to quirky details is subtle and masterful, painting a picture that is rich and real in all its absurdity. If not a place you'd like to live, at least a place you were glad to have visited and gotten out alive.
Angel Food is just a real good time. Some of the most creative fiction I've read in a good long time.
