"Such fictionalized testimony elevates real-life trauma and provides the sufferer a communal space… in which to grieve and stop grieving. One of the protagonists of 'Small Change' mentions the marvelous music that Bach composed to the words 'Ah world, I must leave you,' music that, metaphorically speaking, echoes the goal of Hendel's fiction: to redeem harsh reality through the denser, richer medium of art." —From the foreword by Lily Rattok

"The overall effect is almost like reading a diary — the glimpses of ordinary private lives… resonate with loss, disappointment and rich, raw emotion." — Publisher's Weekly
