Susan Wicks's prose works find haunting new shapes for the practical and emotional dilemmas specific to modern women's lives.--Stephen Burt "TLS "
She is neither naive nor inexperienced, and yet her writing has a bloom on it. There's a fine surprise at the act of writing itself, and what it can accomplish.--Helen Dunmore "TLS "
