for THE ARSONIST’S SONG HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH FIRE ::
Jackie Kruszewski, Style Weekly: Readers of “The Arsonist’s Song Has Nothing to Do with Fire,” will notice many conceits of poetry in the prose: sequential repetitions and rhythms that lend a dreamlike quality to the story. Sometimes they jar you from the narrative, but mostly they make for a beautiful and haunting first novel.
