Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Attenberg’s imagery is picture-perfect…Her complex characters are not only relatable but share a journey we have all traveled.” Elle
“Attenberg’s narrative voice—a lean, straight-ahead, deadpan tone that cuts cleanly through Catherine’s hypocrisy and self-pity like a laser-guided strike—makes The Melting Season singular and disquieting.” Chicago Tribune
“With this finely tuned story about the power of friendship and the thrill of self-discovery, Attenberg proves she is one of the bright lights of her generation of writers.” Chicago Sun-Times
“An intelligent, moving portrait of a journey to self-awareness, with meaty characters and a refreshing absence of psychobabble.” Kirkus Reviews
“[Attenberg] renders poignant prose and portrays the desperate behavior of her characters with verve.” Booklist
