Reviews

[A] shimmering and brilliantly engaged collection.--Marisa Silver
[Millet is] one of the funniest writers of American fiction, a rival of George Saunders, Paul Beatty, Nell Zink, and Donald Antrim.... You have the sense that Millet could easily bury us in her smartness but has instead cleaved to the characters she's created and made her humor generously broad. These are accessible fictions.
Superb.... The collection is linked through characters that reappear (as relatives, friends, lovers) as the book progresses, showing the ways in which we are living in simultaneous dimensions of pain, betrayal and forgetting. Yet as bleak as their situations may get, there remains a thread of dark humor.
The tales' intersections are as intricate as L.A.'s freeways--but, unlike the 405 at rush hour, totally delightful.
Millet's great virtue is her negative capability. She inhabits the thoughts of the young and the elderly, of the fortunate and the bereaved, and of deviants and crackpots with equal candor and conversational ease.
