–The Washington Post

“**** . . . Robinson fills her pages with detailed, sensuous writing that strikes a deep emotional chord. . . . [A] splendid collection.”

“[Robinson’s stories chart] the ebb and flow of affection and fury within relationships [and] carry us across the spectrum of human experience.”
–The New York Times Book Review

“If stories were paintings, Roxana Robinson’s short works in A Perfect Stranger . . . could be seen for what they really are: little marvels of light and shadow.”
–O: The Oprah Magazine

“Brilliant . . . vivid stories . . . a mesmerizing writer.”
–The Seattle Times

“Start in on any sentence and I’m absolutely sure you’ll read to the end of the story, and of the book, and you’ll come out of it feeling grateful, deeply stirred, seriously happy.”
–Alice Munro
