Reviews

"[An] empathetic exploration of an author's soul."
--NPR

"Wonderful. . . . Scissors is extraordinary . . . for the humanity and compassion with which Michaka presents his flawed and fascinating characters. . . . Tender without ever slipping into sentimentality."
--The Millions

"Inventive. . . . [Michaka] succeeds at evoking Carver's own oft-imitated style."
--The Santa Fe New Mexican

"A pretty darn good novel."
--The Oregonian

"Michaka performs the prodigious feat of intertwining four biographies to produce a powerful reflection on literature itself."
--Le Monde
