Product Details


"Christine Schutt takes us into the darkest reaches of a woman’s experience and offers us a vision of tenderness and rage. Here are lovers, mothers with their children, sisters, friends and kin in all their gorgeous, transgressive intertwinings — and, through an alchemy of language and feeling, here, too, is improbable grace."

Dawn Raffel

"Here is irresistible, jewelled prose, carried bravely up, word by precise word, phrase by exhilarating phrase, from a psychic underworld which tells us we are, all of us, rife with the powers of beauty and terror and tenderest regard."

— Melissa Pritchard

"Unsettling insights and beautifully stylized prose propel Schutt’s impressive first book. The writing is spare anti the stories brief, creating an effect akin to prose poetry."

— Publishers Weekly

"Powerful … Razor-sharp writing in stories sliced admittedly close to the bone."
