The Painted Alphabet

By: Diana Darling

Hailed by the New Yorker as a “dazzling little gem,” The Painted Alphabet binds mythic and modern time together, recasting an old Balinese folktale as a fantasy novel that opens a window on an exotic culture.  In this fresh and startling portrait of Bali—where witches coexist with tourists and talking animals—Diana Darling explores a kaleidoscope of vanity, desire, and the longing for goodness.
