"Delightful ... In Lara, Maum has given a little-considered daughter a more hopeful future." --Mona Simpson, The New York Times Book Review

"Maum's slender, intelligent Costalegre is about many things: art as spectacle and art as discipline; life as joke and life as tragedy; the role of unreason in paintings and politics. But most of all, it's about the youthful desire to be, in Lara's words, contemplated and considered -- to be, in short, loved." -- The Boston Globe
