Praise
"Original and accomplished, if at times unsatisfying....Haake's gifts as a writer are obvious, but her narrative acrobatics--however compelling as literary exercises--often distance the characters from their assigned roles and leave the reader more with an idea about storytelling than with an actual story."
From the Publisher
Annotation These eight stories are about women seeking meaning in chaotic lives, and the author intrudes from time to time to comment on the tales and to suggest alternative plot twists.
