Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The transparency of Cuatro hermanas, far from pedestrian sociology and familial teratology, turns Carleton's writing into a gift."  —Ricardo Menéndez Salmón, author, La ofensa

"It's hard to say which is more surprising: that Jetta Carleton's The Moonflower Vine is her first novel, that it's her only published novel—or that it's essentially been forgotten. . . . Among the great pleasures of the novel . . . is the writing, which captures both the beauty of the natural world and the complexities of human emotion."  —Washinton Post, on the English-language edition

"[A] wonderful novel. . . . Carlton neither romanticizes, nor ridicules, rural Missouri life, and she carefully draws a family full of contradictory passions and desires."  —Chicago Tribune, on the English-language edition
