Reviews

Praise for Days

There is an almost incredible purity of line and texture in these stories. Every phrase is lucid, every character comes alive, and every sentence suggests a calm, wise, heartbroken version of the world. Robison writes like an avenging angel, and I think she may be a genius. --Richard Yates, author of Cold Spring Harbor

These are not stories so much as splinters of contemporary life, set under a microscope . . . there is humor here, as well as deadpan exactitude . . . Mary Robison's style at its best is stripped, incisive, clear as a piece of glass held up the the light. --Ann Tyler, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Breathing Lessons
