Reviews

A "New York Times "Notable Books "A mindsearing, soul-rattling, gratitude-inducing collection."--"O, The Oprah Magazine" "Gaitskill writes with visceral power. . . . She commands her readers' attention as few fiction writers can."--Kathryn Harrison, "The New York Times Book Review" "Masterful. . . . Past, present, future; heartbreak, desire, and loss--none of it is quite beyond her. Gaitskill's prose glides lightly over unsoundable depths."--"The Village Voice" "Exquisite. . . . Gaitskill never stops at surfaces. . . . She believes--maybe reluctantly--in the absolute primacy of human connections, no matter what mess we tend to make of them."--"The Chicago Tribune" "Intense and thought-provoking, compelling and often tragic, yet filled with a subtle magic. . . . Gaitskill explores the spectrum of emotion: lust, greed, sorrow, hope, anger and many forms of love."--"Los Angeles Times" "Gaitskill is a fiercely emphatic writer--her concern always how close we can get to the pith of a protagonist or relationship--and "Don't Cry "is wonderfully Machiavellian in its excavation of character."--"San Francisco Chronicle" "Evocative yet efficient descriptions that remind you why you read in the first place. . . . Gaitskill never loses sight of her ambition to claim her readers' hearts. . . . With unpretentious yet heartbreaking lines. . . . Gaitskill owns you, and earns the right to put you through the ringer of vulgarity."--"Newsweek " "Gaitskill's short stories, with remarkably little prologue, routinely go far down and in deep. . . . She is, to be sure, one of the great living American fiction writers."--"The Buffalo News"" ""Gaitskill seems to have traveled through a lifetime of perception, moving in a progression from raw and violently sexualized to tender and regretful, with every character knowing the intimacy and exhaustion of sorrow."--"The Boston Globe" "
