"Koja can pack a lot Dickensian humor into a sentence."The Plain Dealer
Decca runs a Victorian-era brothel and is in love with the co-owner, Rupert. He in turn is in love with Decca's puppeteer brother, Istvan. When Istvan reappears, their love triangle is enmeshed in an approaching war which forces them to abandon the Poppy. Lush, sexy, and vivid, Under the Poppy is being adapted for the stage, was longlisted for the IMPAC Award, and received the Gaylactic Spectrum Award.
Kathe Koja is working on The Mercury Waltz (the follow-up to Under the Poppy). She lives in Detroit, Michigan.
