By Charles de Lint from Tom Doherty Associates. Once upon a time there was a little girl who wished she could be anywhere else in all the wide world except for where she was.
By Charles de Lint from Tom Doherty Associates. Or more preferably still, she wished she could find some way to cross over into whatever worlds might lie beyond this one, those wonderful worlds that she read about in stories.
I’m an onion girl, like in that song Holly Cole sings. And what I’m most afraid of is that if you peel back enough layers, there won’t be anything left of me at all. Everyone’ll know who I really am. The Broken Girl. Maybe the stories can fill me up. So. Once upon a tim. try to move my right hand again. It’s like it doesn’t exist.
Even asked the crow girls to look in on you. They all say the same thing. If there was something special going on in your life-a reading, a book signing, a gallery opening, a gig-you could always count on Jilly to be there to help you celebrate. Just as she was also there when the world bore down too hard and you needed a friend, someone to commiserate with.

I love Charles de Lint, but I have a warning: If you've never read him don't read this as your first book. Try Someplace to Be Flying" or "Jack the Giant Killer" or any of his short story collections
I love Charles de Lint, but I have a warning: If you've never read him don't read this as your first book. Try Someplace to Be Flying" or "Jack the Giant Killer" or any of his short story collections. The Onion Girl is an ugly, brutal, emotional kick-in-the-teeth about childhood sexual abuse of a pair of sisters framed in an urban fantasy. I had a Norman Rockwell childhood and found it hard to finish because you can't help but feel for Jilly and her sister. And if anything Widdershins is worse

Charles de Lint is the modern master of urban fantasy However, with The Onion Girl, de Lint sets out to tell Jilly's story
Charles de Lint is the modern master of urban fantasy. Folktale, myth, fairy tale, dreams, urban legend-all of it adds up to pure magic in de Lint's vivid, original world. No one does it better. However, with The Onion Girl, de Lint sets out to tell Jilly's story. Sporting more than a slight crush on Jilly, naturally I was excited to see a whole novel devoted to her character, as I can imagine most fans of de Lint's were. Fans, get ready to have your hearts broken. It gets worse for Jilly.
