Praise for Homework
"Immensely compelling and intelligent, profoundly chilling, Homework echoes Henry James's Turn of the Screw—it's that eerie, beautifully crafted, and brave in its willingness to illuminate the dark side of childhood and our own most closely guarded notions of innocence and evil." Francine Prose
"Riveting.... The dark legacy of unfilled longing and blighted innocence is illuminated with elegance and insight." Carol Verderese, The New York Times Book Review
