"Terese Svoboda is one of few contemporary American writers who possesses a global consciousness."
- Brooklyn Rail
"Terese Svoboda is one of those writers you would be tempted to read regardless of the setting or the period or the plot or even the genre."
- Bloomsbury Review
"One of our best writers."
- Karen Russell
"Svoboda juggles comedy, mystery, tragedy, horror—and masters them all." -- Superstition Review
Ms. Svoboda distinguishes herself with the peculiarity of her prose, which takes a darting, indirect approach that almost attains the abstraction of a tone poem. -- Wall Street Journal
Everyone likes ghost stories – except Dog on Fire isn't exactly that. Imagine a sad-funny elegy, Cather channeling Saunders, with infusions of sly wit.
"A contemporary "Dustbowl Gothic" novel."
– Rone Shavers, author of Silverfish
"Haunting and darkly witty reckoning."
- Dawn Raffel, author of Boundless as the Sky
"Thrillingly alive to this bewildering moment."
- Rene Steinke, author of Friendswood
