Glass Town: The Imaginary World of the Brontës

Greenberg not only shows how the juvenile “scribblemania” of the Brontës prefigured later literary accomplishments, such as Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights, but also crafts a story that resonates within our own century. Engrossing for both adults and teens attracted to alt-history fantasy or the Brontës. (See also, Catherynne M. Valente’s The Glass Town Game, SLJ 6/17.)

The One Hundred Nights of Hero

Greenberg (The Encyclopedia of Early Earth) is a staunch believer in the power of stories, and, like Manfred, readers get sucked into each one she tells. Highly recommended for adult readers, especially those who enjoy mythology and fable.

What writer Alan Moore does with superheroes in Watchmen and Top 10, Greenberg accomplishes with folktales, creating an exemplary debut story and gripping commentary on the graphic form. Some profane, violent, and disturbing content; suitable for YA and up. An essential title, recommended for all fiction and graphic novels readers.
