An Eighth Day View:
" Graceful...Poetic...Otto's voice is sympathetic and direct, her imagination equally practical and romantic."
--The Philadelphia Inquirer
" ENCHANTING...ASTONISHING AND LOVELY."
Kiki Shaw, a game show question writer, is about to turn forty. She doesn't mind that, except that she's also disappearing. Parts of her that were always there are vanishing, and no one seems to notice. As she contemplates this experience, Kiki makes certain discoveries about her life and those of the women closest to her. Perhaps they will all evanesce bit by bit, until they detect where they misplaced themselves and their once-promising lives (.
As she did in her New York Times bestseller, How to Make an American Quilt, Whitney Otto has created a rich gallery of voices and lives that draws us in and pierces our perceptions of who we are or should be.
" The sight of a work and talent in progress is welcome in the House of Fiction."
--The New York Times
" You are in the hands of a master. Now sit back and enjoy it."
--The Hartford Courant
" This gradually, even magically, unfolds to yield another of Otto's intricate, intimate tapestries."
