Reviews
"In prose that moves between lyrical and caterwauling, the poet Laura Sims has pulled off the high-wire act of making bitterness delicious." --Vogue

"[Looker] is an ephemeral fiction with a hard landing--like a window, seen in passing, that glows and goes dark." --The New Yorker

"Sims's debut is a breathless and unrelenting portrait of one woman's unraveling." --Greer Hendricks, New York Times bestselling co-author of The Wife Between Us

"An unflinching portrayal of women looking upon each other as disturbingly as men do." --The New Statesman

"A perfect, dark pleasure. . . . A rare debut filled with gorgeous sentences, savory twists, and shot through with ferocious truths, this is the kind of book that can only be written by an author who is thrillingly unafraid." --Mona Awad, author of Bunny
