QUOTES OF NOTEMrs. Blood
Mrs. Blood wears her nerve ends outside her skin like an updated Katherine Mansfield heroine—and she responds intensely to her external environment and to her subconscious. The effect is to create a vivid impression of a personality in crisis…A spectacular tour de force, this.
— _ New York Times Book Review
QUOTES OF NOTEReal Mothers
These stories are for…anyone who admires a writer in masterly control of her material.
— Globe & Mail
Thomas demands more of her readers than most writers, but the rewards are much greater too.

QUOTES OF NOTELatakia
An evocative fictional voice that is one of the most powerful in Canadian fiction.
