Songs in Ursa Major

 I was expecting to read Daisy Jones in prose, but this was so different. I loved the exploration of brilliant genius creating masterpieces…’Jesse was a thoroughbred…Jane a wild gelding’…I loved seeing the casual acceptance of that genius from both Jane Quinn and Jesse Reid. I completely believed their chemistry and the tragic love story. I loved the exploration of the ‘matriarchal island pioneers’ I was so there for Janie Qs recording, I felt like a fly on the wall, all those ‘soaring hopes transfigure into dark despair..’ This is a novel also about sexism, standing up to the patriarchy, and mental illness. I can’t believe it’s a debut
