Reviews
"Monica Datta's prose gallops like music and glitters like shards. Formally daring and compulsively readable, Thieving Sun heralds the arrival of an extraordinary talent."
--Susan Choi, author of National Book Award winner Trust Exercise

"Thieving Sun is a highly intelligent, staggeringly inventive novel structured by music scales indicating time, but it's more than that: emotionally powerful, sad, whimsical, and beautiful, this book is a dizzying delight. Monica Datta is a startlingly inventive writer who has written a moving story of love and loss. Absolutely brilliant."
--Brandon Hobson, author of National Book Award finalist Where the Dead Sit Talking

"Intricate, enigmatic, piccant and fascinating."
--Lucy Ellmann, author of Goldsmiths Prize winner Ducks, Newburyport
