“Davis's passion for her characters makes them achingly real… spare, elegant prose… powerful and suspenseful…Davis writes with a stunning clarity and economy of words. Her keen ear for dialogue is also evident. Her fly-on-the-wall accounts scratch beneath the surface, revealing each character, warts and all. In the words of the late American writer David Foster Wallace, "fiction is about what it is to be a human being." Davis does much to affirm that statement.”
