Praise for Mary Caponegro

“Mary Caponegro is one of the most imaginative, daring, serious and playful writers alive.”—Jonathan Safran Foer

“The music of Mary Caponegro’s stories is to the mouth what wine is. Readers will find themselves lost among answers, intoxicated, knowing only that these are stories unlike any others before or since, which is for this reader at least, a relief, a challenge, and a godsend.”—William Gass

“Mary Caponegro notates the music of the wind.”—Robert Kelly
