Praise

New York Newsday
"A touching, darkly comic novel. Reading it is like traveling somewhere we recognize as both familiar and exotic, and which, we know, has never been described with such headlong and reckless precision." - Francine Prose

Boston Globe
"Recounted in a lively, tumbling voice, [it] shows unswerving focus on its fierce protagonist, so fully realized that each of us, in the end, feels her pain and bafflement as our own."

New York Times Book Review
"Enlivened by wit and irony, this devastating novel gives eloquent voice to Russian women and paints their lives in dramatic and authentic colors."
