Reviews

Praise for Never Breathe a Word

Never Breathe a Word is nothing less than a marvelous slide into an emotional abyss . . . Always seeded with cold wit, [Blackwood] reveals remarkable, ungentle insight . . . Blackwood's characters are wicked and wise, cruel and funny and weak. They are liars. They are like many of us. --Los Angeles Times

A selection of compelling fiction and journalistic pieces [that] spotlight Blackwood's sharp-edged observations . . . [An] accomplished oeuvre by an author who should be better known in the States. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Caroline Blackwood's female characters are monstrous in size and in attitude . . . The male characters, no matter how altruistic, are crushed under their weight . . . This is typical Blackwood--taking familiar themes and throwing readers through a loop, either with plot twists, bizarre caricature, or both . . . Let's hope the strange musings of this boozy muse are here to stay. --Bomblog>
