Reviews

Spectacular.
Hoffmann is not just a good writer but a great one, with the ability to find, in the moment-to-moment dislocation of daily existence, epiphanies of revelatory force. What Hoffmann has achieved is a kind of magic.--David Ulin
Hoffmann writes in a language of miracles.
Hoffmann's subject is the miracle of this most ordinary thing, and his prose is its revelation and praise.--Jenny Hendrix
Hoffmann's meandering is intensely personal, yet his hope that the cataloguing of thoughts and feelings will lead to some kind of larger understanding beyond the self is entirely universal.
