Reviews

"A Pandora's box-style tragicomedy . . . [Kaui Hart Hemmings's] comic sense is finely honed in this refreshingly wry debut novel."--The New York Times Book Review

"With beautiful and blunt prose, Hemmings explores the emotional terrain of grief, promising something far more fulfilling than paradise at its end."--San Francisco Chronicle

"A surprising and affecting novel, a story about death and infidelity that manages to be a finer, lighter story about life and love."--Time Out New York
