Praise for Mother and Child

This plotless but not directionless novel beautifully contemplates the treachery of the world that motherhood exposes, and the child's ignorance of it.--Publisher Weekly

Praise for The Art Lover

The tough-mindedness, originality and wit of her perceptions are intoxicating. -Publishers Weekly

By giving the conflicts in her life a fictional context, she tries to bring order and beauty - and some degree of understanding - to chaos. -Library Journal

Fully coherent, moving and elegiac, a genuine consolation. -The New York Times Book Review

Heartbreakingly perfect...A dazzling second book and an almost impossible act to follow. - San Francisco Chronicle

Praise for Room Lit by Roses

In lush, elliptical language, Maso charts her first experience with pregnancy and new motherhood in a journal that reads like prose poetry, couching the mysterious experience in surprising forms, syntaxes and imagery. . . her dreamlike treatment of pregnancy, birth, mothering and writing should enchant mothers, mothers-to-be and writers with a poetic bent. -Publisher's Weekly
