Leaps of Doubt in R. O. Kwon’s “The Incendiaries”
by Anna E. Clark
“IS THERE ANY TIME of life more racked by yearning and uncertainty than college? Not, at least, in R. O. Kwon’s The Incendiaries, a debut novel that cannily blurs the line between campus novel and cult lit. As Kwon depicts them, those aching years are a time for confronting the fuzziness of one’s beliefs, for wrestling with the problem of who we want to be.”

Review: Loss and attraction power Maria Flook’s ‘Mothers and Lovers’ by David L. Ulin.
“…The story of April, an English professor at Sinclair College, a third-rate institution in Providence, R.I., “Mothers and Lovers” plays around the edges of the academic novel while remaining too dark, too weird to fit the category.”
