The Winter without Milk Reviews


Avrich's sentances are acute and piercing, giving these stories a striking delicacy and a confidence that is impossible to ignore. The New York Times Book Review

Deftly written...[Avrich] balances skillfully between the fantastical and the real...keeps readers on the edge of their seats. The Washington Post

Rich, wonderfully origianl writing...Highly descriptive, epigrammatic prose, literary allusions, and folkloric references offer complex, rewarding reading. Booklist, ALA

Playful inventiveness and a fluid prose style...Stories astonish as much as they entertain. Kirkus Reviews, Starred

Exceptional...Full of telling details, wickedly so...lives up to the promise of it's elegantly odd title...Distinctive. NPR - Fresh Air
