Reviews

"Eliza Factor's Love Maps is a delight, and I read it with mounting pleasure and admiration. It feels strange to think of Love Maps as a pleasure--this is, after all, a book that captures in technicolor detail the pain and vulnerability that come with just about every variety of human relationship. But prose this witty and psychologically deft, and structures this intricate and heartbreaking, don't come around often."
--Ben Dolnick, author of At the Bottom of Everything

"The tone and tension in Love Maps is expertly drawn. Between sisters and lovers, artists and architects, mothers and sons, and--of all things--people and ashes, Eliza Factor has managed to tell the truest kind of story: about the inconvenience of love, and the choices people make when they're most afraid."
--Amanda Stern, author of The Long Haul

Praise for The Mercury Fountain

"Eliza Factor's first novel, The Mercury Fountain, explores what happens when a life driven by ideology confronts implacable truths of science and human nature...Factor counters convention with a sharp sense of character, evocative subplots, and the dangerous allure of mercury itself."
