    This is a book that I'm sad to have finished because I became so attached to the narrator, to her outlook and circumstances. Though it spans only the space of a few days, the reader gets so much. Helen Moran is awful and wonderful and completely relatable. This is a book everyone should read....

    Add Patty Yumi Cottrell to my list of favorite writers right now! Sorry to Disrupt the Peace is so engrossing and well-balanced, the way it blends the dark world of private depression and alarming humor reminds me of Miriam Toews or the films of Noah Baumbach. I'm sort of at a loss for words on how ...

    I love the narrators honesty and bluntness -- it feels like you're really in the characters head. The book is written as actual thoughts a real human could have, rather than thoughts an author would want a character in their book to have. The main character seems like the kind of character you might...

    I have this thing about McSweeney's, right. A lot of you know this about me. I do not like McSweeney's and Dave Eggers is to blame for it. But that's not really the point here other than to say that because of the McSweeney's connection, I almost didn't read this book at all. But my friend asked me ...

    VOICE VOICE VOICE VOICE! Cottrell does many things right in this book but what completely blew my mind was the VOICE! Helen Moran is a uniquely fucked up and weird person and when her younger adoptive brother commits suicide she decides to investigate his death. Cottrell blends the darkly depressing...
