Woke Up Lonely by Fiona Maazel
"I really loved this book. It's sad, lovely, funny, strange, and fantastical. It's complex and multi-layered, challenging without being difficult to read.

That being said, I get that some people won't feel the same way about it. In fact, some of the..." Read more of this review »
Woke Up Lonely by Fiona Maazel
"The language slips and slides and Maazel (pronounced like Gazelle) doesn't always go for the easy sentimental, so the payoffs for true tenderness are real here. It took awhile though to get the rhythm, and to keep all the different character's str..." Read more of this review »
Woke Up Lonely by Fiona Maazel
"Guys, this is a literary fiction book with an actual plot. It's great! On a sentence level it is sometimes over-written and awkward, but I still found it to be compulsively readable. Pynchonesque in its character names, weird sex, use of niche voc..." Read more of this review »

“Little moments nostalgia
does not have to extol, because they were already nice to begin with.”
Fiona Maazel, Woke Up Lonely

“We didn't need dialogue; we had faces.' It's what Thurlow used to say on days they spent staring at their newborn. Ida on that play mat with the arches overhead, groping for toys, gumming the fur, and them on either side, on their stomachs, watching the world dilate in her eyes.”
Fiona Maazel, Woke Up Lonely

Play the harp enough times, an angel you become. This, at any rate, is what the handbook says.”
Fiona Maazel, Last Last Chance
