Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The four main characters in Pickle’s Progress seem more alive than most of the people we know in real life because their fears and desires are so nakedly exposed. That’s because their creator, Marcia Butler, possesses truly scary X-ray vision and intelligence to match.” Richard Russo, New York Times bestselling author
“Surprising and audacious…[Butler is] a gifted storyteller with a uniquely dry sense of humor and a real sympathy for her characters.” NPR
“With detached wit and restrained horror at her characters’ behavior, Butler explores the volatile nature of identity in this provocative novel.” Booklist
“Butler’s debut…starts with a crash then slows as the characters’ personalities develop. In this study of how childhood experiences shape perception, and how deception keeps people caged, Butler shows that nothing need be set in stone.” Kirkus Reviews
