"...a stunning debut...Wolas is singular in her voice—and yet the delicacy, the specificity reminds me of my most favorite authors: J.D. Salinger, Carson McCullers, Truman Capote, Joan Didion.”
—A.M. Homes, New York Times bestselling author of May We Be Forgiven
"...audacious and dynamic...The Resurrection of Joan Ashby is a remarkable tapestry of literary skill, emotional insight, and sensational storytelling.”
—Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street
"This...book pulls you under and you go willingly. Wolas captures worlds in worlds here, and lives in lives. As many currents run in a single river, The Resurrection of Joan Ashby is rich and wide, and deep.”
—Sarah Blake, New York Times bestselling author of The Postmistress
“Wolas’ debut turns a critical and perceptive eye onto the complications and expectations of marriage. It’s also gorgeously written. Get into it.”
“The scope of The Resurrection of Joan Ashby, the breath of its engagement with the reader, the impressive realization of its ambitious literary character, all resonated so deeply that the pages of...other books offered naught but hollow echoes."
