Reviews

"Clocking in at a sharp 101 pages, you're finished before you can lodge a complaint, its contents going down as smoothly as a martini served in an ice-cold glass." -- Kaitlin Phillips - 4Columns
"Violence dredged from the depths of consciousness is the most darkly glittering seam running through this world. Exhilarating." -- Laura McLean-Ferris - Bookforum
"Jaeggy's astute compression of narrative detail is at once serene and startling. Beneath a placid, opalescent surface lurks a threat of violence that may or may not be realized, but which contributes to the profound impression that people and their lives are unpredictable, coursing with icy, barren wildness." -- Emily LaBarge - Los Angeles Review of Books
"Reading Jaeggy is not unlike diving naked and headlong into a bramble of black rosebushes, so intrigued you are by their beauty: it's a swift, prickly undertaking, and you emerge the other end bloodied all over." -- Daniel Johnson - The Paris Review
"Jaeggy seems to have crushed a glass in her palm and tweezed out a few shards for the page. Her prose is indeed extraordinary...it is also frightening." -- The Rumpus
"Dipped in the blue ink of adolescence, Fleur Jaeggy's pen is an engraver's needle depicting roots, twigs, and branches of the tree of madness: Extraordinary prose. Reading time is approximately four hours. Remembering time, as for its author: the rest of one's life." -- Joseph Brodsky
