“Reve [has the ability]… to wring menace out of things left unsaid.” — Daily Mail

Expertly translated.” — The National

“In a distinctive voice that captures childish incomprehension while still conveying what is missed by the still immature mind, the two words collected in Childhood are dark and even unpleasant, but both strong and impressive.” — Asymptote Journal
