The summer issue of Montreal Review of Books is out today. And I am thrilled to report it includes Elise Moser’s review of my soon-to-be-released novel. It’s a feature review complete with quotations from emails Elise and I exchanged. Read it here:
Here’s the first paragraph:
“I think Babies “R” Us is one of the saddest places there is – everyone looking to buy something that will make a very traumatic and life changing experience into something more manageable.” Like her main characters, Jennifer Quist does not hesitate to express firmly held, intelligent opinions. That’s her talking about birth. You should hear what she has to say about death…
What a great review. I also find Babies R Us to be a soul-crushing experience.
Except for a missing set of quotation marks before a long quote, I’m very happy with it. The stuff about death being professionalized — that’s actually me talking.
