Critical Praise


"A fresh, accomplished first novel . . . tackles challenging material with honesty and a clear eye."

Kirkus Reviews

"A deeply sensual book."

The Believer

"Michelle Wildgen writes with a fresh, appealing honesty and has done a marvelous job of capturing that youthful moment in our lives when we are like sponges ready to soak up someone else's character, taste and charm.”"

Francine Prose, People (four stars, Critic's Choice)
