Reviews

The most revolutionary collection of stories by an American in twenty-five years -- John Freeman * Boston Globe *
Profound, beautiful, moving. You will go back to a little gem that has wormed its way into your mind and stuck there, and discover that it is indeed a little gem, which sparkles a different way each time and flashes with a brief beauty or hidden meaning -- Susan Hill * Spectator *
Davis hints insistently at how abundant nothingness can be when we bother to look at it -- Joshua Cohen * Times Literary Supplement *
Among my most favourite writers. Read her now! -- A. M. Homes
Can't and Won't shows Davis using precise language to articulate the kind of ideas and impressions which are usually left to float around the subconscious -- Max Liu * Independent *
