Reviews

A NYLON Most Anticipated Book of the Year

Braiding together the voices of two women--a mystic and a skeptic--Witches, to borrow Brenda Lozano's words by way of Heather Cleary's translation, runs into shadows to bring light. This is a story of the world's repeated failure to control feminine power and the sheer magic of language itself. An enthralling, passionate story about secrets both holy and profane. --Catherine Lacey, author of Pew and Nobody is Ever Missing
