A great review

Bogi Takács, who has done a lot of wonderful reviews of Hugo-eligible work this year, offers a clueful and detailed, and very positive, review of “Held Close in Syllables of Light.” What a treat – thank you, Bogi!

Bogi raised two issues about worldbuilding: one pertaining to the class representation in “Held Close…” and another about the parallels between the Khana and the Jews. I have answered the question of classism in the comments (the second one is probably more to the point than the first), and I am planning to post my response to the “Jewish Question” (hehe) separately as an essay on my blog.
