NPR Review

I'm grateful for this wonderful review from NPR:

"Ghosts of Bergen County is a tough, compassionate book by a writer with a keen sense of what makes us human, and what makes us, at times, wish we weren't. As a novel, it's excellent; as a meditation on grief, it's stunningly perceptive." Read more of this blog post »

With Teeth by Kristen Arnett
"Kristen Arnett’s new novel, “With Teeth,” is the perfect baby shower gift for someone you hate.

“For adults, summer was different-- flatter, the way everything became flatter when you grew old, like the hills you once sledded and stood on your pedals to climb, like the Christmases and birthdays you once anticipated, even after you discovered they disappointed, again and again, until you became numb to their disappointment.”
Dana Cann, Ghosts of Bergen County

“There were no witnesses except the woman who'd been up all night, had consumed two beers and three vodka tonics before switching to (and sharing) the play-wright's Scotch, and she (the witness) could remember the morning only in snatches, like the digital stills and clips that cycled through her computer's screensaver.”
Dana Cann, Ghosts of Bergen County

“Collective burden, defined as the aggregate internalized guilt and complicity of a group of people, is the wellspring from which spirits arise.”
Dana Cann, Ghosts of Bergen County
