Reviews

"The Age of the Child is a powerful indictment about an all-too-possible United States where a craven, authoritarian government decides it has the right to tell women what they can and can't do with their own bodies and minds. Tsetsi's prose is luminous; it puts the lie to such corrupt and immoral political acts, and does so via an exciting drama that illuminates the hypocrisies of our time without flinching." Alan Davis, Fairfield University low-residency MFA program creative writing faculty member, author of So Bravely Vegetative

"Engaging and unsettling. Tsetsi tells a story that will keep you reading and wondering late into the night. I've never read anything like it." James C. Moore, political commentator and co-author of the NYT best-selling Bush's Brain: How Karl Rove Made George W. Bush Presidential

"An intriguing look at a future that feels frighteningly possible." Journal Inquirer

"Kristen Tsetsi has done the most frightening thing any artist can do by taking a current threat to human rights and following it to a logical conclusion. ... The Age of the Child packages important social commentary in a moving story." Readers' Favorite

"A masterstroke in the dystopian revival, The Age of the Child is visionary, relevant, and unnervingly plausible." Brian Felsen, founder of BookBaby

"Tsetsi's novel takes place in a near-enough future to recognize many of the conditions that prevail today. When we are through, we are tempted into a conversation that we've not had with spouses, friends, or acquaintances." Elizabeth Marro, author of Casualties
