Praise

For readers tired of political art’s worn-out strategies, Summer of Hate joins the rest of Kraus’ bibliography in offering an engaging and razor-sharp alternative.—Meagan Day, Full-stop.net

Summer of Hate is original, intelligent, darkly humorous, emotionally honest, and it grips the reader with a relentless thriller-like force.

Victoria Patterson, Los Angeles Review of Books

When writers like Kraus commit to a subjective stance—biographical or not—they become easy targets for critics quick to dismiss the work as indulgent, aggressive, or victimizing. Summer of Hate is commendable for not only taking up the mantle of sexualized female subjectivity, but for its narrative of exploration the real psychic underbelly of the elite art world: the experience of the disenfranchised and the incarcerated, and the limits of a social system that imposes ever greater disparities between classes.
