RaveThe Boston GlobeWhether she’s observing people who work at Ruby Tuesday or Harvard students, Evans is a startlingly good sociocultural mimic ... Each story shares a particular female voice: tough, pragmatic, knowing, snappy ... The tension to keep control is especially painful in the most dramatic stories because the characters are just steps away from losing it all ... There are books that capture our world perfectly, like a scrim over a stage. And then there are books that surprise the audience and go somewhere new, somewhere completely unpredictable. In this collection, Evans paints a picture, sometimes ripping through the fabric. One wonders where she will go next.
