Sara IvryThe women in Suzanne Rivecca's first story collection…are looking for salvation, though not the kind that involves Jesus. You'd be forgiven for making that assumption, considering that so many of these antiheroines are the products of Catholic schooling. But in fact, most of Rivecca's ruthlessly frank and lonely characters have left religion, and the saving they seek in this modest, engaging and disquieting collection is from the plague of isolation—or it is, anyway, when they’re not themselves trying to be the rescuers, saving others from any number of scourges.
