Product Details

Praise

“A revelation. . . . Boston Adventure is surely one of the most haunting depictions of female isolation in fiction, rivaling in its unrelenting sense of imprisonment Charlotte Brontë’s Villette. . . . [The Catherine Wheel] vividly evokes the despair of an adolescent engulfed by loneliness. . . . The Mountain Lion is rightly hailed as Stafford’s greatest novel, . . . a grim fable, of sorts, about the pressure to leave certain childish things and people behind in order to achieve adulthood.” –Maureen Corrigan, The Wall Street Journal

There is a new opportunity to ask why work of such originality could ever be forgotten … Forty years after her death, her sentences still gleam like knives.” —Parul Sehgal, The New York Times
