Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Wise and whimsical…There’s plenty of playfulness and warmth throughout these stories, but there’s plenty of insight, too. Nobody pulls it together, and nobody falls apart. They simply go on, doing the unexpected, the admirable, and, often, the regrettable, for one of the oldest reasons in the word—love.” O, The Oprah Magazine
“Wondrously engrossing…Signs and Wonders display[s] her characteristic strengths—dynamic plots, keenly observed settings, and characters so idiosyncratic, ambivalent, and contradictory they could be your family, your neighbors, people you work with.” Boston Globe
“The literary equivalent of a Paul Simon album: crisp, focused, lovely, and lasting…Ohlin’s characters are so genuine you’ll be reminded of people you know, love, and hate.” Marie Claire
“Ohlin’s second winning short story collection grapples with the trappings of love and loss…These snippets of life’s upheavals highlight Ohlin’s keen eye for observation.”  Publishers Weekly
“[Ohlin’s] characters, male and female, may not always be sympathetic, but they are always believable. They are as diverse as the stories’ settings: colleges and cities, both coasts of the US, and beyond borders. The skillful use of surprise will induce laughter and shock, often in the same story and at the same moment.”  Booklist
“Presented from unusual perspectives in a distinctive, sometimes enchanting voice, each story is filled with paragraphs that are often whimsical short tales in themselves. Readers who enjoy a youthful, fresh approach will find each story a satisfactory adventure.” Library Journal
