"Riveting... Rich and delicious... I slipped into The Liar like falling into a velvet milkshake... While Gundar-Goshen paces it like a thriller, you read The Liar for its playfulness and for its wisdom about truth and lies and guilt."--Moira Macdonald, Seattle Times
Praise for Waking Lions:

"Begins with such velocity that you can't put it down."--The Guardian
"Riveting... Propulsive... Walking Lions yokes a crime story to thorny ethical issues in ways reminiscent of Donna Tartt and Richard Price."--Sam Sacks, Wall Street Journal
"A sophisticated and darkly ambitious novel... Gundar-Goshen is adept at instilling emotional depth into a thriller plot."--Ayelet Tsabari, New York Times Book Review
" Vividly imagined, clever, and morally ambiguous... A smart and disturbing exploration of the high price of walking away."--Maureen Corrigan, NPR's Fresh Air
"Immensely suspenseful... Gundar-Goshen's alarmingly realistic and superbly written novel will leave readers wondering what they might be capable of under duress."--Jessica Howard, Shelf Awareness
"A poignant, thought-provoking tale of the #MeToo era."--People
Praise for The Liar:
"Evocative... Moving... Gundar-Goshen writes sensitively of inner turmoil and loneliness."--Teddy Wayne, New York Times Book Review
"Unsettling . . . Gundar-Goshen presents the reader with glimpses into other stories . . . resolving some mysteries but leaving others to reverberate beyond the final page."
--Margaret Quamme, Booklist (starred review)
"Gundar-Goshen navigates the landscape of racial prejudice, particularly the tension between Jews and the Nation of Islam, through the eyes of an Israeli immigrant who is already scarred by experiences of terrorism in Israel. . . Gundar-Goshen solidifies her brand with this ambitious novel, her first set in the United States. Flawed but relatable characters and off-the-charts emotional intensity with a sharply evoked Israeli cultural perspective."--Kirkus Reviews
"An ethically complex literary thriller . . . Gundar-Goshen effectively employs the long history of tension between Jews and the Nation of Islam, as well as the latent prejudices of her characters, to cast doubt and build suspense . . . This brainy suburban suspense novel is both taut and timely."--Publishers Weekly
"Razor-sharp writing and exhausting drama that ends with great surprise . . . Gundar-Goshen trades in the peril of unexpected consequences that etch the future with foreboding, then, with the clang of a leg snare, there's no escaping."--Jeffrey Mannix, Durango Telegraph
"Propulsive and psychologically complex"--Andrew Esensten, Jewish News of Northern California
