Reviews
Praise for Bitter Almonds

"Wry, sly, and coyly seditious, Cosse's piquant satire is a subtly wrought manifesto against blatant consumer manipulation and media malfeasance." --Carol Haggas, Booklist

"Cosse poignantly depicts characters."
--Publishers Weekly

Praise for Laurence Cosse's previous novels

"[A Novel Bookstore] makes a good argument for literature as a sensual pleasure surpassing even sex and fine wine."
--The Washington Post

"Marvelous and stimulating."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"A deeply satisfying manifesto of book love and a sharp indictment of those who would use such love for their own evil purposes."
--The Huffington Post

"The psychological issues Cossé raises [in An Accident in August] are telling and true."
--Kirkus Reviews
