Description

"Janowitz is a fearless writer. Her details are quirky, her language is lean and her sentences sprint along with deceptive ease. The protagonists in her stories share with her a shyness and a sense of always being out of place. Although they try in earnest to fit in, they put on the wrong clothes or say the wrong thing or fail to grasp the subtle messages other people send their way" - "New York Times". "The shrewd observation, the skewed invention are the gifts of a singular talent" - Jay McInerney.show more
