Críticas:

Saint Mazie offers proof again that Jami Attenberg is a brilliant, lion-hearted storyteller -- Maggie Shipstead, author of Seating Arrangements I'd love to be Jami Attenberg for a day to see what she sees. The next best thing is to read the touching, funny, and wise Saint Mazie, which is as difficult to categorise as the hard-living, heart-breaking, soul-saving ticket-taker it is about. -- Charlotte Rogan, author of The Lifeboat SAINT MAZIE is a novel with as much style and moxie as its titular character. I missed Mazie Gordon-Phillips and her family when I was finished reading, but I missed New York, too. By telling this one woman's story, Jami Attenberg has managed to write an ode to New Yorkers of every generation. She is a true poet of the city. -- Gabrielle Zevin, author of THE STORIED LIFE OF A.J. FIKRY Praise for The Middlesteins: 'Family ties are anything but simple, and the joy of this book lies in Attenberg's merciless, tender, often brilliantly funny peeling back of the layers of history. Sublime. -- Kate Saunders Daily Mail A moving, hilarious portrait of a family in crisis Observer The Middlesteins had me from its very first pages -- Jonathan Franzen Saint Mazie is a terrific novel - touching, funny, big-hearted, just like Mazie herself. It's written with great verve and brio, and I loved the way we circle around and then dig deeper into Mazie's life through the multiple voices and sources. It's Mazie herself, though, who shines the brightest, and who lingers on in the mind and heart, a real diamond in the rough -- Monica Ali
