Reviews

"Marie-Helene Bertino's stories are hilarious and heartbreaking and wildly inventive, and her narrators are endlessly appealing and both fiercely proactive and stubbornly self-defeating. That's more than enough for me."--Jim Shepard


"When have I last read such highly original stories? With a surreal edge and a brilliant dark humor, Safe as Houses's tales of daughterhood and its mishaps mark a staggeringly good debut."--Deb Olin Unferth, author of Revolution
