Reviews

An appealingly dark first novel...authentic, substantial and engaging.
-- The New York Times Book Review
Glatt's brave and vulnerable observations channel the provocative writer Anne Sexton....She dares to infuse dark humor where tear-jerking sentimentality would be easier....A powerful debut.
-- The San Diego Union-Tribune
A Girl Becomes a Comma Like That adds an emphatic exclamation point to the start of a promising career.
-- Vanity Fair
Razor sharp and exceedingly funny. A heartfelt and troubling book about how things go wrong, time after time, and how we manage in spite of it.
-- Frederick Barthelme
