Kasischke skillfully mixes an insightful look at a damaged woman with a twisty plot that builds to a shocking ending.

Winner of a National Book Critics Circle Award for her poetry, Kasischke also writes fine fiction; this novel is up for France’s Prix Médicis étranger, and Kasischke’s writing has been compared to that of Joyce Carol Oates. Like Mona Simpson (Anywhere but Here), Kasischke vividly depicts a woman’s tormented inner world.
