Smoke has as many different scents as skin Part of the pleasure is not knowing what it will be sulfurous or closer to incense or airier and sweeter as I imagine the smell of cloudsElla is a connoisseur of fire a woman enthralled by it as other women are by love She savors the seductive promise of a spark the caress of a curling wisp of smoke. The prose of this novel is rich and poetic as we follow Ella a 22 yr old woman through that crooked place between childhood and adulthood between following the path that our parents told us would be there and finding our own pathsHere Steinke uses fire in the past Ella bears scares from childhood and in the present Ella is fascinated by fire and begins to set them as the motif for destruction and change I found the whole novel satisfying and cathartic
