“In Our Lives Became Unmanageable, the reader inhabits a reliable world where voices are pink, dads float on ceilings, and defective mirrors hold bodies and souls. The world is this world. The world is a sad world. The world deserves kindness. The world will take us to difficult places. From department stores to apartments to beaches, the narrator takes us down the path of her problems, putting first always her care with the problems of others. Craven is a wonderful storyteller, and I really can’t wait to read more of her fiction.” (Kate Bernheimer, judge of the Omnidawn Fabulist Fiction Contest)
