I loved this book. A speculative, alternative vision of the U.S. that hits just a little too close to home, HESTIA STRIKES A MATCH had me at turns laughing out loud and grinding my molars in disgust. I have such a soft spot in my heart for brusque, dramatic elderly ladies and Mildred hit that note precisely. Grillo makes wry observations about human behavior in a landscape that feels hopeless. Luckily for readers, Hestia's tale is hopeful and smart.
