Praise

Advance praise for Strega:

“A work of mythic reinvention about the power of girls coming of age in a world hell bent on containing their passions and imaginations. . . . Strega left me breathless, angry, and then thrilled by the dare it leaves in the reader’s lap.” —Lidia Yuknavitch, author of Thrust and The Chronology of Water

“Utterly immersive, Strega is a modern-day fairy tale in the primeval sense, a visceral, hallucinatory allegory of coming into womanhood. It’s at once timeless and completely new, with surprising and evocative prose—a glittering translation of a masterful work.”  —Julia Fine, author of The Upstairs House and What Should Be Wild

Strega is the kind of book Lolita would write if she wrote like Thomas Mann. Johanne Lykke Holm uses the young women as her stage and transports you to another world, where everything is scenography. As uncompromising and brilliant as she is disturbing, I am forever devoted to the cult of her.” —Olga Ravn, author of Booker International finalist The Employees
