Praise

“A novel of ideas that moves with the speed and inevitability of a freight train. . . . Entertaining, devastating and as slippery as a strand of its anti-heroine’s lank hair.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“The quest to excavate the intact truth from layers of mythology, ideology, and memory is what yokes the reader to every word of Heidi Julavits’s new novel. . . . A riveting, at times deeply funny, disturbing book.” —The Boston Globe

“Beautifully wrought. . . . Assertively smart, trickily constructed.” —The New York Times

“An ingenious, seriocomic study of the female imagination’s power to alter and contort the lives it touches.” —The Miami Herald
