Review

Praise for "Black Glass"
Fifteen wickedly inventive tales featuring some of the most original female protagonists in recent fiction. . . . Every story showcases Fowler s rascally wit. Michael Magras, "Chicago Tribune "
Highly imaginative . . . In fine-edged and discerning prose, [Fowler] manages to re-create both life s extraordinary and its ordinary magic. "The New York Times Book Review"
A splendid book, displaying a dazzling range of style, tone, and odd, true insights. Fowler is one of a kind. Minneapolis" Star-Tribune"
Arresting . . . each piece puts us on notice in its own way that an intriguing intelligence is at work. "The Boston Globe"
"Black Glass," Fowler s longest story, is one of those marvels that defeat criticism . . . It s a piece of bravura virtuosity, which Fowler also manages to make extremely funny. You reread the story, intent on discovering how she did it, and end up losing yourself again to wonder and enjoyment. "The Washington Post"
[An] astonishing narrative voice . . . at once lyric and ironic, satiric and nostalgic . . . Fowler can tell stories that engage and enchant. "San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle"
[A] literary wonder whose work is comparable to writers like Anne Tyler and Louise Erdrich. "The Des Moines Register "
Fifteen ferociously imaginative and provocative new stories . . . Accomplished, risk-taking, exciting new work from one of our most interesting writers. "Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)
[A] stunning collection . . . carefully intertwines the ordinary with the extraordinary [so] that what should seem incredible is fully believable . . . [A]t the core [the stories] are about human relationships and all the more startling for their insight from seemingly unrelated points . . . Highly recommended. "Library Journal"
[In] elegant and witty prose, [Fowler] cultivates the eye of a curious alien and, along the way, unfolds eccentric plots that keep the pages turning. "Publishers Weekly"
Karen Joy Fowler [is] one of the most accomplished and most adroit fiction writers in America. "Los Angeles Review of Books""
