"But for all its dank humor and brutal dissection of the nuclear family, O Fallen Angel is also a philosophical novel, deeply concerned with the problem of freedom."--Electric Literature
"In Zambreno's vision, Trumpism is a disease that's intertwined with a quintessential American illness, both mental and physical, and a denial of corporeal reality-sex and death in particular-at its root. (I recommend it thoroughly)."--Flavorwire
"Zambreno isn't writing to change your life, and she isn't writing to revolutionize the plight of women. She is writing to change the way you experience a story. She is writing to hit you in the gut in the very best way."--Chicago Review of Books
"Embracing the didactic language of parable while turning it on its head, Zambreno's punchy, matter-of-fact, repetitive sentences belie repressed emotional truths... The effect is a poetic visit to Middle America, one that's more likely to expose hypocrisies than generate empathy."--Huffington Post, Book of the Week
"The book is visceral and astonishing-there are not many writers like Zambreno out there."--Bookriot
"Delirious, uncanny, the tragedy is ecstatic, each sentence pushes you to the next, each chapter to the following. This is the page-turner of experimental work."--The Paris Review
"... the timing of O Fallen Angel's re-release fuckedly transitions it from Sad Girl Cult Classic to Great American Novel in écriture féminine."--Sam Cohen, Weird Sister
