From the PublisherBinnie Kirshenbaum, author of Pure Poetry With this charming debut novel, Susan Coll manages to stylishly juggle the contemporary dilemmas of her heroine, Ella Kennedy, the political theories of Karl Marx, and the tragic story of his daughter Eleanor. The result is a thinking girl's treat.
Kirkus Reviews A stylish debut.
Lisa Zeidner The Washington Post There are plenty of dating novels around and also plenty of academic novels. But Susan Coll's antic first novel is an original hybrid: an academic dating novel....Coll has mastered comic pacing.
The New York Times Book Review Coll is an energetic, imaginative writer, and her send-ups of the dichotomy between one's ivory tower principles and daily life are wryly funny.
