Reviews


"[Helen] Phillips' brashly experimental debut novel charts via linked fables the course of a young couple who fall in love, survive many floods, get married, have fights, make mistakes, and create a family--the whole shebang revealed in completely surreal yet oddly everyday prose."--"Elle"

"Surreal miniaturist Helen Phillips's debut collection, "And Yet They Were Happy", is full of gems."--"Vanity Fair"
