Madeleine and Rogan are first cousins, best friends, twinned souls, each other's first love. Even within their large, disorderly family--all descendants of a famous actress--their intensity and passion for theater sets them apart. It makes them a little dangerous. When they are cast in their school's production of Twelfth Night, they are forced to face their separate talents and futures, and their future together. This masterful short novel, winner of the World Fantasy Award, is magic on paper.

Elizabeth Hand is so good at writing about magical dark underworlds behind everyday-seeming life. A young woman narrates the time when everything changed. There are several love stories: her unconventional affair and her discovery of theatre. Hand does a great job at capturing the irresistable intoxication of both. And some mysteries remain mysteries, as they should.

a very short read, somewhat unsettling but overall very average.
