Praise

“[Braverman’s] talent, uncorked, is as bold and brave and beautiful as anything we see from writers of her generation. Her latest work of fiction, a pulsating prose meditation on the life and death of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, makes that abundantly clear.” –Alan Cheuse, San Francisco Chronicle

“Imaginative and assured … [Braverman] has produced a masterful work in The Incantation of Frida K.Bookforum

“Braverman’s literary genius shines here as she takes on the voice of Frida Kahlo, which emerges with the luminous and haunting tone one would imagine the late Mexican artist would have.” Library Journal

“A story that belongs to Frida as much as to the American writer.” Reforma

“Dazzling and illuminating … Braverman has a talent for lyrical and hallucinatory language that neatly matches her subject, the interior musings of Frida Kahlo … To read this book is not only to understand what made the artist tick, it is also to feel the excruciating ticking of a life fueled by pain.” –Washington Post Book World

“Braverman deliberately mixes genres, creating a new kind of syntax influenced by poetry, music, performance art, memoir, and biography.” American Book Review
