–Swan Huntley, author of We Could Be Beautiful
“Rachel Hulin ably demonstrates that the age-old epistolary form is deeply satisfying to the modern reader; we're the voyeurs in a story that's often delightful and occasionally discomfiting.”
–Rumaan Alam, author of Rich and Pretty
“The twin protagonists of this sparkling epistolary novel, Harry and Matilda, are also actual twins. And though they communicate with each other regularly, they also do so irregularly—their letters, filled with inside jokes, culture references high and low, advice, questions, and lived-in philosophy, can be uproarious or wistful, glib or pained, brilliant or obtuse. Through their communiques, they paint a vibrant picture of their lives for each other, for themselves, and for us. Hulin does wonderful things with adult friendship and the language that describes it. Harry and Matilda map each other. They mirror each other. In short—and in long—they correspond.”
–Ben Greenman, author of The Slippage and What He's Poised To Do
“Endearing and indecent... Creative and funny... [Hulin’s] writing excels in its ability to make the twins appealing. The email-exchange format leaves the reader feeling closely connected to the characters… Humorous and intimate... A novel as remarkably witty as it is frightful.”
