RaveThe Furious GazelleFilled with lovely prose, The Tenth Muse manages to remain an intimate story while going through a sweeping history ... The way that Chung marvels at the power of science and math in describing the natural world entranced me. By using Katherine’s journey of identity Chung also lends that power a warmth that I don’t usually see, as it is so personal ... The Tenth Muse is a very satisfying and overall excellent read. It gave me a lot to think on as well as be inspired by (I’m writing this review on my break from an internet rabbit hole of women mathematicians) and I was very disappointed when it was over.
RaveThe Furious Gazelle\"This collection of work, spanning four decades, goes on to show just how necessary Morrison is to our literary canon and how illuminating to our society ... Not only do many of Morrison’s pieces ring out truth in much the same way it’s obvious that they do because she’s doing her job as a writer. Every piece answers what the role of what the artist in society should be because she uses her work to analyze, critique, and offer answers for our world ... Reading this collection is to spend time in the mind of someone brilliant.\
PositiveThe Furious Gazelle\"Stephanie Land’s memoir about raising a child while trying to raise herself out of poverty should be required reading for anyone who has not struggled with poverty ... At times, the book seems a little impersonal for a memoir ... While Maid will be a learning experience for some- give it to anyone who’s ever complained that people in poverty are there due to laziness- for others it’s a recognizable story about survival.\
RaveThe Furious Gazelle\"... a fascinating and quick read yet at just under 160 pages this novel packs a lot of story. Hagy’s writing is beautiful, stylistically as the whole book comes off as poetic as well as having that practicality that lets the reader feel like they are really in the landscape of the novel ... The writing is dream-like at times even going well into fantasy- apparitions appear, the dead speak, dreams and reality intertwine. All of these occurrences are straight out of the folkloric influences that Hagy relies on. Throughout the novel the power of words are ever present. Language, history, and stories (whether oral, written, or even mythical) shape reality ... artful, eerie, dark, stunning, haunting. Plotted quickly and written expertly Scribe is the next book you’ll be thrilled to have picked up.\
