Jordan s Calamity is VOICE if you take my meaning The novel is told in series of three Books and each of these books is one set of adventures The narrator Calamity Jane is telling the stories of her life to a writer who is transcibing her words for the public This is her memoir and she is reminiscing thirty years into her past to the time the adventures took place It s unlike any memoir I ve ever read and even though there are moments that Calamity Jane reminds us that she is telling this from a distance it is told with such immediacy that you are caught on her every move Jordan captures the reader and takes us on a gritty journey through the dusty landscape of the American West and in the end you ll thank him for the ride Calimity is far and away the most creative work of fiction I have read in years It is incredibly imagined beautifully rendered and hauntingly real Calamity Jane herself is a fine mix of insecurity fierce spirit audacity tenderness tenacity love and hate She is fifteen in the tales orphaned and alone in the world when her path crosses with the Green Man who is believe it or not not the first green man she has encountered When her world is tumbled to dust she hitches her fate to the Green Man and they set out together Martha Jane Canary is a fierce little bird and in this tale she transforms shedding the childhood fears along with the name she associates with those weaker moments She takes Jane as her nomiker and reminds herself always to be strong not a Martha which always made me realize what a young girl she was during this story The Green Man is magnificent Jordan s descriptions of the Green Man are clear and precise and come across as absolutely possible even real I loved all the textures Jordan provide the feel of the Green Man s skin the opaue blackness of his eyes the dexterity of his antennae or stalks There is nothing left unfinished in this novel it is full to bursting with details that never once feel overblown
