Radiant Shimmering Light by Sarah Selecky
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I didn’t want this story to end. Selecky holds up a mirror to our obsession with social media and self marketing tools and leaves one torn between when to laugh and when to cry. Relationships are threatened, compromised or created by the ever-present need to be out there, to garner more followers and to be validated in cyber space.
I found, as I have in the past with Selecky’s writing, that she manages to create prose that works on the reader’s sub-conscious; you know you’re been affected, but how? That is her secret, that is her genius and gift as a writer.
She also has a sharp, wry and very astute sense of humour, that immediately connects with the reader. I know it was great as it continues to stay with me.
