"One of Yuknavitch's primary talents is to make the deep, often hidden flaws of our culture—those toxic waste dumps—explosively manifest." —Rain Taxi

"Yuknavitch's imaginative stories have a penchant for irony. They delve deep into a materialistic culture that is not just obsessed with itself, but obsessed with its obsessions." —American Book Review
