Reviews

"In unpretentious, quietly penetrating prose, Itani exposes the richness and depth beneath the surface of one ordinary life."
"Remembering the Bones is an astonishing feat, an extraordinary reflection on life, death, family--and what it ultimately and genuinely means to be fully human." -- Martin Dickinson
"With this book, Itani joins a group of novelists who have chronicled quiet lives from start to finish, uncovering treasure in their dark corners: Carol Shields with The Stone Diaries, Marilynne Robinson with Gilead." -- Susann Cokal
"[Itani's] unsentimental narrator creates an effective feminine counterpoint to the aged male protagonist in Philip Roth's Everyman.... Itani succeeds in granting Georgie's story nearly as much gravity and loving scrutiny as royal watchers give the queen." -- Donna Rifkind
