Editorial Reviews

"Polly Horvath...knows just how to twist language to make readers sit up and take notice...and she draws her characters with such precision that they peak without ever going over the top." - New York Times"Horvath's writing crackles with energy. There are no dull sentences here, no flab. This is a funny, wise, big-hearted novel about the unquenchable nature of hope and joy, and the nourishing power of storytelling. Everyone should read it." - Quill & Quire, STARRED REVIEW
