“She has an amazing knack for hauling together the beauty, mess, joy and folly of ordinary people’s lives.”
—The Hamilton Spectator
“What a treat it is to read Anita Rau Badami.”
—National Post
“Badami’s psychological insight illuminates every scene [and] breathes authentic life into her characters. . . . Badami is a first-rate novelist.”
—NOW (Toronto)
“Badami’s descriptions of all locales are vibrantly realistic, filled with sensory detail and an acute sense of place. Badami’s feeling for place is matched, if not surpassed, by her ability to create characters that move off the page and into your mind.”
—Edmonton Journal
“Badami writes graceful, evocative prose and plays complex variations on her themes. All her characters are vibrant and deftly drawn.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Heartfelt and heartbreaking. . . . A chilling and pertinent read, one that remains frost-burned in the mind after the final page has turned.”
The Georgia Straight

“Part literary whodunit, part psychological drama, Tell It to the Trees is all about solitude and secrets–and how the two can combine to hold a family together; and, at the same time, tear it apart.”
The Gazette
