See what they are saying about our books.
“[Keiko] is an anti-Bartleby, abandoning any shred of identity outside of her work. . . . the book itself is tranquil—dreamy, even—rooting for its employee-store romance from the bottom of its synthetic heart." - Katy Waldman, The New Yorker review
"Hirshberg’s debut novel packs both emotional punch and a vivid portrait of Jewish American life in post-WWII Boston." - Booklist review
"Hurray for Nell Irwin Painter! This Princeton historian finishes up a fine academic career – and then gets an MFA in art at Mason Gross at Rutgers, and then gets another one at the Rhode Island School of Design. You go. One of the must-reads of the year." - The Philadelphia Inquirer
