Dave Eggers San Francisco Chronicle
Any lover of realistic narrative fiction about actual and unglamorous people will be greatly rewarded by the work of Antonya Nelson.
Lynna Williams Chicago Tribune
These are precise and acutely knowing stories, written by a woman who understands the potential of both female trouble and the short story form.
Frederick Busch, The New York Times Book Review
These are serious stories, sensual and dark, with much at risk for the reader and, one imagines, the writer...Female Trouble
is the work of a strong writer who sees both panoramically and with a powerfully close focus.
Carmela Ciuraru Newsday
Precise, perceptive, and exceedingly funny.
