Review quote

Praise for Previous Work: "A genre buster with an engaging prose style, Nelson interweaves psychoanalysis, personal memoir and true-crime tidbits into a darkly intelligent page-turner." -Time Out New York "Very rarely does a book come along that combines such extraordinary lyricism and ethical precision with the sense that the author is writing for her very life ... Nelson refuses complacency and pushes further into the unknown." -Annie Dillardshow more
