Reviews

"[A] witty, winning collection...The DNA in these stories may be old, but Galchen has uncovered a new register and a new space for the domestic and the fantastic to meet. There might be no better model for looking to the past in order to move forward." --The New York Times (The New Vanguard: Remarkable Books by Women That Are Changing the Way We Read and Write Fiction in the 21st Century) "To read Rivka Galchen is to enter a wonderland where the bizarre and the mundane march in unlikely lockstep." --Michael Lindgren, The Washington Post "Spectral, demanding stories from a brilliant young writer." --Elle "Galchen's sentences catch your attention and hold it with a tight fist . . . Delicious stories." --Alan Cheuse, NPR.org "Skillful, imaginative, often funny . . . In that grand tradition of American innovators, perhaps Ms. Galchen's greatest artistic creation is herself." --The New York Times Book Review "To read Rivka Galchen is to enter a wonderland where the bizarre and the mundane march in unlikely lockstep." --Michael Lindgren, The Washington Post "Spectral, demanding stories from a brilliant young writer." --Elle "Galchen's sentences catch your attention and hold it with a tight fist . . .
