Book Review: The Seven Or Eight Deaths Of Stella Fortuna

I was thrilled to receive an advanced copy of The Seven or Eight Deaths of Stella Fortuna, Juliet Grames’ debut novel published by Ecco Press. It’s a beautifully written novel, with well developed characters and a lively, lilting narrative voice reminiscent of Louis de Bernieres.

It’s a story about truth and memory – and about the truth (or lack thereof) in memory; a family saga, a story about sisters. Early on in the novel, Grames observes that “Modernity has stripped some of the magic out of the ways we live and die” – with this debut novel, she has brought some of the magic back.
