"Edith Pearlman's book is remarkable for its scope, vision and craft. Each story is so well imagined, I kept suspecting Pearlman of having actually lived the lives of her character, who are as varied as they are interesting... every story feels informed by a rare, original wisdom". Jane McCafferty, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Praise For Vaquita and Other Stories

“Most of Pearlman's stories feature strong female characters whose solitary lives have been altered by unexpected encounters, illustrating truthfully how subtle incidents shape human lives. . . . Four interrelated stories about the management of a soup kitchen for homeless women illustrate the collection's powerful thematic effect.”
