Reviews

Remarkable. . . . In almost every story, Quade goes for vivid spectacle and theatrical plot twists . . . But Quade focuses just as intensely on the subtler customs, cruelties, kindnesses, and skewed alliances of precarious family life.--Ann Hulbert
[Lives] up to even the loftiest of expectations.
A fantastic writer, both stylish and sagacious. The stories here are taut and tense, while at the same time morally complicated, which is to say they cut sharp and they cut deep. . . . A book of extraordinary virtuosity.--Justin Torres
A writer of extraordinary perception, a sharp-eyed truth-teller who renders her characters and the landscapes they inhabit with exquisite care. Each of these marvelous stories illuminates the messy, tender, unexplored borderland inside us all where our finest virtues bleed into our worst faults. A brilliant debut.--Maggie Shipstead
Fresh, funny.... A gifted storyteller with an eye for quirky, compelling detail.... A poised and polished debut.--Jenny Shank
