Review quote

"An explosively imaginative writer." -"The London Free Press"
"She is a master of her material, a writer [of] great talent." -"Muriel Spark"
"Many consider her to be the best living writer in this language." -"Evening Standard"
"The overwhelming impression of her work is one of remarkable self-confidence, and she evidently thrives on risk.... As good as Poe: it dares you to laugh and stares you down." -"The New York Review of Books"
"The most interesting writer I have read in twenty years." -Gore Vidal
