Reviews

"A beautiful, sensuous novel" -Library Journal

"Pulkkinen spins variations of [the] theme of transformative identity, having characters periodically relate to one another as if they were improv artists" -New York Times Book Review

"Secrets, long hidden, are revealed through alternating voices from her family's present and past in this poignant work of fiction." -Barnes & Nobel Book Review
