Pre-publication reviews of GIRLS GONE ASTRAY by Susan Isa Efros "Full of vitality, wit and wonderful insight... a voice that should be widely read and will be very popular." Susan Griffin, Author Chorus of Stones and The Book of the Courtesans "I love Efros' characters. They are funny, quirky, sure of themselves, spirited and refreshingly honest. Good characters to grow with." Molly Giles, Author Creek Walk and All the Wrong Places "... a vital, witty poet whose work has given me much pleasure." Marge Piercy, Author Made in Detroit and The Cost of Lunch Etc. "... a clear-eyed, sensitively written series of imaginative stories. Efros gives us a wonderful sense of place, and brings us close to her characters with authentic-and often very humorous-dialogue." Thaisa Frank, Author Heidegger's Glasses and Enchantment "Efros gives us a compelling collection of stories, writing from multiple points of view... a wonderful cast of characters who share their secrets and personal tragedies. The pace is brisk and the dialogue is so vivid that it leaps off of the page. I read it all in one sitting and wanted more!" Mary Mackey, Author The Village of Bones
