"Jennifer Quist's Love Letters of the Angels of Death is formidable, a woman's portrait of a man's portrait of the woman he loves. It offers all the immersion and propulsion of the best fiction, but is temporally liquid in the way of lyric poetry. How does she do it? Funny, dark, deceptively ambitious. I couldn't put it down, not only because I enjoyed it so much, but because it contained so much I had to know." -- Padma Viswanathan, author of The Toss of a Lemon
"Jennifer Quist's Love Letters of the Angels of Death gives new meaning to the marriage vow "Till death do us part." This original, brilliant novel overflows with the exuberance of life shot through with the devastations of mortality. Weddings and wit, family and funerals, passion and pain, the love between the main characters ultimately defies death itself. In vivid prose consisting of a memorably distinctive narrative voice and riveting images, Quist writes of our unspoken anxieties about the plethora of dead things in our midst from dust to the incorruptible bodies of saints. Unsentimental, mordantly funny, Love Letters of the Angels of Death is innovative, surprising, at times heart-wrenching but not despairing, and always remarkable." -- Kenneth Radu, author of Sex in Russia
