Reviews


"A fierce and necessary story of love in the face of obsession, and living when there's one last chance. With language of crystalline beauty, Diana Wagman charts a course of life and death--of body, and of soul--in a novel of riveting suspense and mesmerizing love."--Dylan Landis, author of Rainey Royal and Normal People Don't Live Like This
"Can a novel be fueled by obsession, rife with suspense, and yet also elegiac and transformative? In Life #6, Diana Wagman presents a single ordinary life as the extraordinary adventure it is and survival as the constant miracle it must be. This is life, pure and simple and endlessly transfixing, and Wagman has captured it on the page."--Adrianne Harun, author of A Man Came Out of a Door in the Mountain
"Life #6 intrigued and delighted me from the first paragraph, and for two days I read it everywhere: at meals, in the bath, in line, while driving, you name it. I loved the wit and despair of its heroine, and the way the past--with all its attendant desires and trauma--wouldn't let her go. I love this book!"--Edan Lepucki, author of California
