Jack of Shadows

Jack of Shadows - Roger Zelazny When I was very young, running out of "age appropriate" stuff at the school library, and becoming increasingly critical of the content of what I was reading, handing me this was my father's solution. It's probably the second best* thing he ever did for me. This book was the beginning of my lifelong love affair with weird.

Still not sure I'd give it to a 5th grader.

*He didn't let my mother name me Frances.
