RaveThe Washington Post\"...by the end of Emily Ruskovich’s riveting debut novel, Idaho, we get sufficient insight into the complex amalgamation of love, darkness and madness in the human soul to approximate a kind of understanding ... some of the most brilliant passages about sister relationships I have ever read ... If all this sounds a bit chaotic, it is. But it is the chaos of life, exquisitely rendered with masterful language and imagery. You leave Idaho feeling as though you have been given a rare glimpse into the souls of genuinely surprising and convincing people ... a powerful and deeply moving book.\
Joyce Carol Oates
RaveThe Washington Post...one of the most curious and moving love affairs in contemporary fiction ... The book examines the nature of passion, affection and, above all, the loneliness that permeates even the longest and most intimate relationships.
