“[Andrea Barrett's] work stands out for its sheer intelligence, its painstaking attempt to discern and describe the world's configuration. The overall effect is quietly dazzling.”New York Times Book Review

"Barrett's stories are precise and concentrated, containing a truly remarkable wealth of psychology and social commentary."Booklist

"The quantifiable truths of science intersect with the less easily measured precincts of the heart in these eight seductively stylish tales. Barrett uses science as a prism to illuminate, in often unsettling ways, the effects of ambition, intuition and chance on private and professional lives."Publishers Weekly
