Reviews

"Daddy approaches questions about power and connivance from a flurry of different angles. . . . [Cline] comes for the king and she doesn't miss."--Los Angeles Times

"Brilliant, dark . . . Cline's fiction is full of binaries pressing up against one another: youthful promise and life's realities; success and failure; darkness and humor; external beauty and internal rot."--Wall Street Journal

Cline is an astonishingly gifted stylist, but it is her piercing understanding of modern humiliation that makes these stories vibrate with life. . . . Brilliant."--The New York Times

"Cline is a master of fiction that wallows in the heavy weight of the unsaid, with perversion and darkness simmering beneath her characters' tightly controlled surfaces. Daddy's ten masterful, provocative stories confirm that Cline is a staggering talent."--Esquire

"A hair-raising collection of short fiction that at once discomfits and titillates, delineating the various ways women and men wrestle with the male gaze."--O Magazine

"Cline's sharply drawn characters are the cowed, contemplative survivors of self-inflicted trauma, both seismic and quotidian. . . . Cline writes with such grace and precision that every sentence is a joy to absorb."--LitHub

"Cline's stories constitute a riveting, timely tapestry of realizations, motivations, and desires."--Booklist
