Liz, the protagonist of Griffith's So Much Better, is defined by her detachment. She works at a credit union during the day and lives with her girlfriend whom she rarely sees at night, and as the book moves along, it s clear she s a loner. She wears her detachment as a badge to ward off potential friends. --Jonathan Messinger, Time Out Chicago
So Much Better is a performance of real life, the kind you might want to shake, say Yes! That s It! but sadly. There are details that Griffith gets astonishingly right, especially vis-à-vis the workplace. We need more literature about work, where most people spend their time. --Kati Nolfi, Bookslut, April 2010
