Book Review: An Excessively Practical Guide to Tarot Card Interpretations (Applied Divination) by Emily Paper

You walk into a dimly lit room. Seated at a small round table covered with velvet astrological signs is a woman in bohemian garb. She asks if you want to know your future, you say yes, because that’s what you’re supposed to say to a diviner, but what you really want is to know where you put your reading glasses. You go home knowing all about your Fate, but still can’t read that best seller you’d been looking forward to diving into. 
This book will not tell you how to divine your destiny, but you’ll know where you put the mailbox key or help you decide which room to clean.

Where to get it?

Tammy loves to build worlds with words, exploring themes the effect of diaspora on the generations born elsewhere than their ancestors with the backdrop of tech or magic and dragons (sometimes both). These stories are inspired by her own family's immigrant experience. She's queer and many of her characters fall somewhere on the LGBTQIA spectrum (though that is not the focus of her work). She's married to an engineer who dances. Together they are raising three precocious teens in the Seattle suburbs. Two of her children are neurodiverse. Her experiences have taught her much about the world, its beauties and its injustices. All of this comes through in her fiction with a healthy dose of absurd humor.
