Reviews

...in the title of this volume [Tawada] chooses to face the bridge, to stare it down, perhaps, refusing to cross. Through her writing she seeks to create a new kind of bridge--not as a structure built of stone or concrete, but as a physical process, a continuing dance.--Margaret Mitsutani
In Tawada's work, one has the feeling of having wandered into a mythology that is not one's own.--Rivka Galchen
