Reviews

"Beth Helms's American Wives is a smart, various look at the uneasy bargains women strike with matrimony, but its real subject is the eternal push/pull of intimacy and identity.... American Wives is dangerous, politically perceptive, eminently skillful, and heralds a promising new voice. Reader, if you sometimes stand up in your life and feel like a tourist in alien territory, Beth Helms has something to tell you." "American Wives is an accomplished collection that explores fresh, intricate relationships in pristine and luminous prose, full of subtly arresting nuance." In her award-winning debut collection, Beth Helms offers up a cohesive collection of portraits of American couples, then breaks them apart and examines the cracks and the fissures in those relationships. The stories juxtapose the awful and the tender in such a way that "truth," in all its complexity, resounds loudest. . . . a haunting snapshot of domestic worlds that we all fear to know.
