"Johnson's language is beautiful, her descriptions of setting visceral, and her characters compellingly drawn." --Publishers Weekly (starred re-view)

"Johnson would fit quite comfortably on a shelf with Karen Russell, Erin Morgen-stern and others who hover in the simultaneous state of being both "literary" and "fantasy" writ-ers." --Shelf Awareness
