Reviews

The New Moon's Arms is a dance of lost-and-found. Hopkinson knows not to get too sentimental, thanks in large part to her heroine's unsinkable sense of humor. It let me hear the mermaids singing.

-- "Washington Post Book World"

A most impressive work...vivid and richly nuanced, utterly realistic yet still somehow touched with magic.

-- "Toronto Star"

Hopkinson has had a remarkable impact on popular fiction...[Her] work continues to question the very genre she adopts, transforming them from within through her fierce intelligence and her commitment to a radical vision that refuses easy consumption...With sly humor and great tenderness, [she] draws out the hope residing in age and change.

-- "Toronto Globe and Mail"

Shows new depths of wisdom, humor, and insight...Like life, Hopkinson's novel doesn't resolve every mystery. But Hopkinson has answered the essential questions in The New Moon's Arms, and she's wise enough to know we need nothing more.

-- "Seattle Times"

Considerable talent for character, voice, and lushly sensual writing...her most convincing and complex character to date.

-- "Locus"
