book Burning Silk

Burning SilkYthingBurning Silk is a novel infused with eroticism which explores family gender love dishonesty and the risk that others might recognize something in us that we will not Kinal spins a story richly woven with the history of silk guilds and of the matrilineal Native American metis and as the transformations of her characters come to parallel the metamorphoses of the moths a profound analogy about what it really means to be a woma I was imagining a kind of a dry historical fiction about the textile industry and boy was I wrong This book is brimming with sexual energy throughout and explicit sexual imagery Kinal flows easily back and forth between the passion of sex the passion of emotion and the passion religious fervor She has a great sense for the physical and biological and somehow makes the practicalities of the silk industry and the biology of the silk worm all seem sexy and dramatic And of course the book is female centered and focused on empowered women trying to shape history
