2011 NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FINALIST
   

“Identity — and the very American belief that individuals can invent or reinvent themselves anew here — is the bright thread that runs through the work of the immensely talented novelist Dana Spiotta… Added to the brilliant glitter of Ms. Spiotta’s earlier work…is something deeper and sadder: not just alienation, but a hard-won awareness of mortality and passing time.
Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

“Fascinating…what’s most remarkable about STONE ARABIA is the way Spiotta explores such broad, endemic social ills in the small, peculiar lives of these sad siblings. Her reflections on the precarious nature of modern life are witty until they’re really unsettling.”
Ron Charles, The Washington Post

“Spiotta has created, in STONE ARABIA, a work of visceral honesty and real beauty.”
Kate Christensen, The New York Times Book Review

“Electrifying…entirely genuine”
David Ulin, The Los Angeles Times
