“Spell-binding...Elegant and character-driven...Glass accomplishes her task with a fresh vision and little fuss, depicting the complexity not just of creativity, but also how ‘sensitivity...is not the same as compassion.’” —Kathleen Rooney, Chicago Tribune
“A lovely meditation on the mysteries of creativity and its costs, not just to creators, but to those who surround them...Avoiding clichés about tortured, exploitative genius, Glass crafts a thoughtful, warm-hearted tale about the choices each of us makes, with consequences inevitably both good and bad...It’s a pleasure to be in the hands of a consummate storyteller.”—Wendy Smith, The Boston Globe
