The lyrical power of Delia Facloner's The Service of Clouds can only be described as stunningly poetic. Her story rains passion, landscape, love and loss on readers, and Falconer writes with a grace not normally associated with first novels. Sensuous metaphors, historical complexity and swirling spirituality form the airy clouds of this absolutely gorgeous novel. Reviewed by Mark Luce.
