“Orner is a highly lauded author whose writing, in both fiction and nonfiction, is an act of wizardry. In each of these micro-essays, he reduces the meat of his own life down to the bone, then stirs in fatty excerpts from hundreds of stories, novels and poems by writers ranging from Woolf to Rhys, Babel to Kafka. The resulting brew sometimes scalds, sometimes soothes, but always proves that literature can be a kind of sustenance.”

– New York Times Book Review

A San Francisco Chronicle Favorite Book of 2022:
“This book is never leaving my possession.”
– Kathryn Ma, The San Francisco Chronicle
Still No Word from You Redefines the Experience of Reading…Orner shape shifts and time travels.”
– Los Angeles times
“Peter Orner’s work clings close to life, to the unadorned, dead and haunting Actual.”
– Marilynne Robinson
