“Kate Jonez is not your typical genre writer. I think she has more than a little in common with Janis Joplin singing the blues. You never just read or listen to either, you experience the story or song. There isn’t a typical Kate story, but some share a few characteristics. The main character (narrator) is different, and often knows it, finds herself in an unbearable situation, and deals in more or less special ways. And always there is a literary rather than genre ending. Kate’s stories do not just terminate. They have a slingshot effect, the reader realizing the story goes on past the last words. Kate is not just a writer for other writers to read, she is one to emulate. A rare voice.”
