"The world looks different after this book. I don’t know how else to say it—a simple conversation, a fleeting memory, the seemingly random are suddenly drenched with significance; one woman’s life and heart layered with literature, with film, with history and philosophy and psychology. Its structure is brilliant, an archive of longing both poetic and precise; a love-letter to language. I still feel hypnotized."
"Suzanne Scanlon enters the inverted space of grief and near-madness with courage, intelligence, and wit–and with a small, sharp light for us to follow."
