Library Journal - Library Journal
This novel portrays the ebb and flow of the imaginary and real worlds in the life of a contemporary woman named Sarah. In a series of nine chapters, we witness Sarah's initiation into the new and often unmerciful world of adolescence, early adulthood, and motherhood. A handful of truly unique characters and unexpected experiences, wild and magical, draws Sarah to a final acceptance of her own personal world, a world sometimes humorous and at other times genuinely hearbreaking but in its depiction always real. A quick-paced first novel that intermingles the imaginary and real worlds in an unobtrusive yet fervent style. Several chapters have appeared in literary journals. The first chapter has been selected for O. Henry Prize Stories, 1992 . Recommended for all libraries.-- David A. Berona, Westbrook Coll. Lib., Portland, Me.

This book was just way too weird. It didn't flow, and just went from one chapter of Sarah's life to the next.
