Reviews

Praise for Rachel Cantor

"Cantor creates a compelling vision of what love is. It's not a feeling but--like translation--an act: a willful opening of one self to another."
--NPR Books

"Cantor writes 'in two languages at once, as if two stories were playing themselves out together, ' and the comedy helps prevent the seriousness from shading into sentimentality."
--The San Francisco Chronicle

"Cantor's prose is witty, poignant, and surprising."
--Los Angeles Review of Books

"By layering the ridiculous inventions of her mind with the ridiculous facts of the world, Cantor creates a novel about being incredulous and certain at the same time, about listening without judgment, about acting on faith."
--The New York Times
