“All of Stephanie Dickinson’s works are about language: taut, urgent, effervescent. Her extraordinary talent shimmies in the daylight of her paged ruminations, in the night of her haunting revelations. Reading Stephanie Dickinson is like being thrown back in time to a more careful, more erudite, era of writing rising off the wings of a brilliance seldom seen these days; maybe it’s because her ‘Emily’ pieces speak of that gentler time. [ . . . ] Her works are all about the lucid, arresting turns of phrase that make language as surprising and re-readable as it should be.”—Chila Woychik
