Praise For Vaquita and Other Stories

“[Pearlman’s] writing is as calm as the most serene of her charecters, a voice that flows around events that themselves are sometimes unexpectedly jarring but always intensely human.”
—Boston Globe



“Pearlman’s tales are written with great authority; details of place and the compassion of the characters ring true every time. . . . There is not a weak story in the collection.”
—Choice
 



“Elegantly written. A solid debut from a writer worth keeping an eye on.”
—Kirkus Reviews
