Quotes & Awards

  • “There are a handful of books that have changed the way I move through the world. The Small Backs of Children is one of them. Lidia Yuknavitch writes with sly, subversive, nervy, compassionate madness. She is one of the great American writers.”

    Chelsea Cain, New York Times bestselling author

  • The Small Backs of Children is intelligent yet accessible, provocative in the best ways, complex yet tightly plotted and riveting. The characters are beautifully drawn, and together their story raises important questions—about violence, art, sex, and survival—that are both timely and enduring. And the writing—the writing is sublime.”

    Whitney Otto, New York Times bestselling author

  • “[An example] of thrilling storytelling with universal appeal.”

    Entertainment Weekly
