“Stellar…McCracken writes with a natural lyricism that sports vivid imagery and delightful turns of phrase.” Publishers Weeklystarred review

“Parents and children, lovers, brothers and sisters, estranged spouses, work friends and teammates all slam themselves together and fling themselves apart across the decades in the glorious clatter of McCracken’s unconventional storytelling.” Kirkus Reviewsstarred review

“Playful, inventive, and fearless.” Library Journalstarred review

“McCracken is a beloved bard of the eccentric, the misbegotten, and the unfathomable. . . . . [A] compassionate and rambunctious saga about love, grief, prejudice, and the courage to be one’s self.”  Bookliststarred review

“To tell a good tale, you need drama—and in this area, Bowlaway spares no expense. . . . McCracken’s prose is well-tooled, hilarious and tender, thoughtful and jocular. Her characters inhabit their world so completely, so bodily, that they could’ve truly existed.” Bookpage, starred review
