Reviews

Praise for The Factory:

She is fond of jump cuts and scenes that dissolve mid-paragraph and flow into the next without so much as a line break. A pleasant vertigo sets in. Objects have a way of suddenly appearing in the hands of characters. Faces become increasingly vivid and grotesque. Nothing feels fixed; everything in the book might be a hallucination.

--Parul Sehgal
Horrific and scary, while at the same time affirming and beautiful.--Rumaan Alam
