Reviews

"Livingston writes with a fierce strength and intelligence that not only makes for compelling reading but an absolutely unforgettable voice."--Kristen Iversen, author of Full Body Burden

--Kristen Iversen (09/16/2014)

"Deft, evocative, mysterious, heartfelt, swirling, lyrical, with lines that pop off the page and essays that shimmer in your head for days after you finish reading them--or thought you did."--Brian Doyle, author of Mink River

--Brian Doyle (09/26/2014)
"Queen of the Fall harvests the rich fruits of memory to explore the virtues and vulnerabilities of childhood, of the feminine body, and of lives filled with longing and aspiration. In this simply beautiful collection, Sonja Livingston serves up gorgeous prose and unswerving honesty to map the awakening of an essayist's heart."--Dinty W. Moore, author of Between Panic & Desire -- (09/16/2014)

"Much more than a touching portrayal of an American Roman Catholic girlhood of the 1980s. . . . This is a book that sheds light."--Kathleen Norris, author of Dakota and The Cloister Walk
