Praise for Y:
“A meditation on loss, identity, and family, Y showcases a tenacious young writer as she schools us in compassion and ultimately cleans house.” --O Magazine
“Filled with grace and compassion.”—Heather O’Neill
“I love ambition in a novel. I love humour, audacity, perseverance, craft. And I am deeply grateful when it gets exquisitely blended in a brand new voice. Y is an evocative look into what makes a family, and what makes a home, and how they are undeniably helixed together.”—Colum McCann
