Reviews

"It takes only a few pages to see that Ms. Groff can write--really write."--New York Observer
"Delicate Edible Birds is wonderfully imaginative, subtle and precise, brimming over with brave and fascinating women. . . . A dazzling collection to make all those readers who are wary of short stories think again."--newbooks
"In her strongest writing, Groff echoes the magic of her gothic forebears."--Financial Times
"Groff's prose is lovely, and when she nails a story--like the title story about journalists fleeing Nazi-occupied Paris--the results are sublime."--Publishers Weekly
