Praise

One of Lit Hub’s Most Anticipated Books of 2022

Love stands as a moving, revealing book that manages to bring something of its uneasy, important fictive world into the real experience of reading it . . . Eitan never wavers in her commitment to authenticity.” —Chicago Review of Books

“I swallowed Love in a single, sumptuous gulp. Eitan’s lyric prose is both lushly beautiful and whittled needle-sharp. I couldn’t (and didn’t want to) turn away from its sting.” —Melissa Febos, author of Girlhood

“Maayan Eitan is a pensive rebel seductress and a literary trickster. Love, her debut, is celebrated by various deans and kingmakers of Israeli letters as one of the new century’s most important books. Her prose-poem account of life as an underage whore is so emotionally persuasive, so transparently metaphorical, so startlingly concrete, so obviously not true, that it had everyone in Israel convinced it was straight-up autofiction.” —Nell Zink, author of Mislaid

Intensely vivid, lyrical, and raw, Eitan’s debut is as disturbing as it is moving.” Kirkus

“It’s slim, but it seems like it couldn’t be any other way. . . . The effect caused by Love, the intellectual and emotional journey its readers go through, leaves them panting, their hearts beating hard.” —Gili Izikovich, Haaretz Arts and Culture
 
“[Love] is written with stunning talent.” —Dan Miron, Haaretz Literary Supplement

“A radiant debut.” —3:AM Magazine
