Praise

“Attenberg’s narrative voice – a lean, straight-ahead, deadpan tone that cuts cleanly through Catherine’s hypocrisy and self-pity like a laser-guided strike – makes The Melting Season singular and disquieting.”
Chicago Tribune

“A rich novel, one that begins as a road-trip yarn but then contains enough twists to form a complicated emotional journey.”
Time Out Chicago

“Attenberg’s imagery is picture perfect and, many times, tragic.Her complex characters are not only relatable but share a journey we have all traveled: leaving home and discovering for the first time who we really are and where we belong.”
-Elle.com

“With a trail of whiskey and Diet Cokes in her wake, Catherine heads west to leave behind a damaged marriage. Reading about her life in Vegas and her road to self-discovery in this novel feels like peeking at a friend’s diary.”
Glamour

“Attenberg is a brave, honest writer with scary talent, and this novel about a young woman heading west to escape a failing marriage and a small town is her best yet.”
Courier Journal

“An intelligent, moving portrait of a journey to self-awareness, with meaty characters and a refreshing absence of psychobabble.”
Kirkus Reviews

“[Attenberg] renders poignant prose and portrays the desperate behavior of her characters with verve.”
