Jamison's first novel reads like a haunting chain of bluesy love songs (or out-of-love songs, as the case may be). The writing is sharp and brilliant throughout, and the multiple womens' perspectives are all masterfully executed. Readers of literary fiction will be delighted to discover this new voice. I might have preferred to hear this one read by the author, simply because the stories feel so intimate that whether or not they're autobiographical, I think the author's voice could add some texture to them. I did not, however, share the previous reviewer's dislike for the narrator--I thought her voice was believable as each of the novel's narrators, and she did a fine job with the dialogue and pacing.

hated the voices - nearly couldnt get through it listening to the horrible crackling voice of the older women, who, especially Matilda, I always thought was Stella speaking anyway / so frustrating. the story was good & some of the prose had brilliance, but listening to the voices was the worst. that's it.
