About the Author

Authors Bio, not available


'Anderson provides a riveting study of a psychologically scarred teenager, peeling back layers of internal defenses to reveal a girl's deepest wounds...It's a tough, absorbing story of the effects of combat on soldiers and the people who love them.' Publishers Weekly 'I finished the final few chapters of the novel unable to break away, closing the cover with waves of emotion crashing over me...a brilliant read.' -- Bookworld blog 'Here is a novel full of cutting tenderness, quiet reflection interspersed with a young woman's rage and crippling inability to help her suffering father. It's beautiful and haunting, as all Laurie Halse Anderson books tend to be.' -- Alpha Reader blog 'Laughter through tears and all manner of matters of the heart make this novel a standout for any reader 15 and up.' Galley Talk 'A characteristically honest and deeply felt exploration of the lingering scars of war.' Kirkus Reviews 'Powerful writing, memorable characters and a sweet romance...this book is one incredible tale of a girl's struggle with her war veteran father and her discovery of love.' 5 star review -- Looking for Panacea blog '[Halse Anderson's] brilliant turn of phrase, cynical, cutting and often very funny, ensures readers will warm to Hayley's complex character immediately.' Sunday Territorian 'Laurie Halse Anderson is the Paul Zindel of the 21st century, creating intriguing young characters who combine strangeness with charm...The Impossible Knife of Memory is a positive story, where events develop in an unpredictable way, avoiding cliches, and providing a satisfying conclusion. In fact, this is a novel that will be enjoyed by all who appreciate good writing.' Weekend Press/Dominion Post 'An impressive book. The characters of Hayley and her father [are] sympathetically drawn.' Magpies
