``On the surface a novel about the complex relationship between two sisters, this is also a freqently funny and often confounding tale that leaps from angels to demons, and from ordinary life in a New Hampshire household to wild and enigmatic fables beyond all time and place,'' wrote PW , commenting, ``With extraordinary imagination and language, Labrador marks the debut of an unusual talent.''
