This is an extremely promising debut: the handling of tone and perspective is assured; the prose lucid and elegant throughout. --Financial Times
Deeply affecting and beautifully evocative, Okparanta's novel is the perfect book to lose yourself in. --Pride
This collection knocked me out because the stories are quiet and understated and lucid and gather up their power almost without the reader realizing it, then they break your heart, just like that. Such subtle and open and strong writing. --The Millions --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

It was okay but nothing that really set me or my imagination on fire. A few sententences that I thought stood out at the time (2 weeks ago) but cannot even remember now, so did they really?
It was just okay.
