Publishers Weekly (starred review)
on What Belongs to You

This is a project of rare discernment and beauty, and it is not to be missed. 

Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
on What Belongs to You

What Belongs to You is a searching and compassionate meditation on the slipperiness of desire, the impossibility of salvation, and the forces of shame, guilt, and yearning that often accompany love, rendered in language as beautiful and vivid as poetry.
