Exciting news: my Starred Booklist review is the Booklist Review of the Day!
"Podos gradually and compellingly unspools Imogene’s preoccupation with her mother, who seems to be at the heart of her father’s depressive episodes, as well as her deeply held beliefs about her own capacity to love and be loved. The noir-like tone of Imogene’s first-person narrative is a perfect match for the gray, chilly New England winter atmosphere, and her frequent referencing of detective novels is not only a key component of her character but also a charming nod to the genre. Sharp plotting, unexpected twists, dynamic characters, and a sensitive treatment of mental illness make Podos a writer to watch."
