"A major new talent. . . .""How to Breathe Underwater""is a dark and beautiful book." -"The New York Times Book Review
"These stories are without exception clear-eyed, compassionate and deeply moving. . . . Even her most bitter characters have a gift, the sharp wit of envy. This, Orringer's first book, is breathtakingly good, truly felt and beautifully delivered." -"The Guardian"
"Orringer's engaging wit, her eye for social detail, her ear for patterns of speech and thought, and her insights into human nature proclaim her a writer to be reckoned with." -"Los Angeles Times"
""Captivating. . . . Orringer limns the ordinary, terrifying time between childhood and maturity so skillfully." -"San Francisco Chronicle
""Pure gems, rollicking along with scintillating prose and surety
In her dazzling first book Julie Orringer dives into the private world of childhood and immerses us in its fears and longings: the jealous friendships and the bitter sibling battles; the parents that row and the boys that won't dance with you. Then, in a voice that is equally tender and compassionate, she reminds us of those rare, exhilarating moments of victory.
'Unbelievably good: the humiliations and cruelties and passions of childhood, sparkling fresh prose, a writer with a big heart and an acute sense of the small things that loom large in our lives' Monica Ali, Guardian
