Reviews

"Finding clues sends her down a rabbit hole of biographies, old pictures, ancestral records, letters, unpublished novels, court documents, and desperate cross-country searches for living descendants; each new piece is another layer to an increasingly complex puzzle. A compelling personal and literary detective story." -- Kirkus Reviews "Kirkus Reviews"
"McCabe's eloquent determination to investigate this mystery, sleuthing online, contacting descendants, and entering archives full of "carbon paper and ghosts," gives His Other Life a historical and literary resonance that is charged with modern energy." -- Meg Nola "Foreword Reviews"
