From NY Journal of Books
"Well written and engaging, this debut novel [...] takes us through the mind of a woman teetering on the edge of madness. It is at times uncomfortable, frightening, and anxiety inducing, but always entertaining."
From The Millions
"The Trajectory of Dreams is a wholly original and fearlessly dark novel, an interesting combination of psychological thriller and character study. In Lela White, Wolverton has created one of the most haunting unreliable narrators I've ever come across [...] and Wolverton is at her best in her depiction of the queasy mismatch between Lela's perceptions and what the reader knows or suspects to be true."
"The Trajectory of Dreams is unsettling, beautifully written, and truly original. In Lela White, Nicole Wolverton has created one of the most haunting characters in contemporary fiction. This is a remarkable debut."
-Emily St. John Mandel, author of THE LOLA QUARTET, THE SINGER'S GUN, and LAST NIGHT IN MONTREAL
"This novel is a free dive into the bottomless ocean of insanity. With every chapter, every kick of the fins, you're sucked in deeper as the darkness mounts and the pressure builds. And like the ocean, The Trajectory of Dreams gives up its secrets grudgingly, so you'll continually be stunned as the protagonist, Lela, falls to her inevitable implosion."
-Mike Mullin, author of ASHFALL and ASHEN WINTER.
