Editorial Reviews

From Bookforum

Adler's novels concede the necessity of making fiction quicker, more terse, descriptively less elaborate than the traditional thing called a novel, not so much in deference to shrunken attention spans, but as the most plausible way of rendering the distracted, fragmentary quality of contemporary consciousness [...] They describe what it's like to be living now, during this span of time, in our particular country and our particular world. This is what the best novels have always done, and with any luck will continue to do. —Gary Indiana

Review

Line for line and sentence for sentence, it seems to me thrilling ... oservant, funny, urbane.  ...  Adler's whole body of work, really, should be more widely available. ... they're products of a late-twentieth-century brillliance. ... Her work hasn't dated: its depth of engagement on every level --- with private life and the life of state --- its comedy and perspective, its shrewd observation of everything from literature to politics to manners and back again, these qualities mark Adler's work as fathomless, as damn near inexhaustible. - Matthew Spektor, The Believer
