The Three Loves of Persimmon

The Three Loves of Persimmon - Cassandra Golds The Three Loves of Persimmon is the story of an improper florist called Persimmon and her talking ornamental cabbage, in parallel with the story of a mouse who dreams that there are beautiful things out of sight. What's not to like? The book is nearly impossible to describe. Through the book, I didn't know whether it was wide-eyed fable or dryly hilarious satire. I think it's a bit of both.All I do know is that if you've ever wanted letters from a clairvoyant dead aunt, if you would stop to hear a butterfly's dying words, if you would contemplate the possibility of a mouse with a rubber-band banjo, if you have wondered if there is Somewhere Else - a Place of Flowers, or if you are the sort of person who might fall for a man who wears no hat: this book might be for you.
