"We used to get drunk; now, we get waxed. I just do my bikini line, but my waxer Sierra wants me to do a Brazilian. “It’s just a suggestion,” she says, because she’s also my sponsor, and sponsors are only supposed to make suggestions. Sierra’s boyfriend works in big data, and he claims over two-thirds of the women in San Francisco get Brazilians, but she says it’s not about him. It’s about overcoming fear and stimulating endorphins."

"The week before Graham Bryant killed his girlfriend, he turned in a paper to my first-year composition course, Animals and Society, arguing that dogs should have the same rights as human beings."

Caitlin Kindervatter-Clark "balances humor and grief the way a skilled bartender mixes a drink; she makes the complex look easy. '12 Steps' is funny without being trivial, sad but not overwhelmingly so, intelligent but not pretentious, casually pretty (a tough trick to pull off). Her story could easily fall into despair, but the hope is too strong. The writing is too strong."
- E.A. Aymar on SmokeLong Quarterly
"But if a dance is a story distilled to its essence, what is the new story? Nature, decrepitude. The swan should be old, stubbornly persisting. But how will she show that; what will it look like? Is there a way to make it beautiful?"
