Praise for Blame
"Unfold[s] like a thriller, creating a sense of urgency and mystery even about everyday matters . . . Huneven’s prose moves like a hummingbird, in small bursts that are improbably fast and graceful."—Maria Russo, The New York Times Book Review"[An] elegant, hair-raising novel . . . Huneven’s prose is flawless."—The New Yorker"The satisfactions Blame offers readers are elegant prose and, deeper than that aesthetic pleasure, the intelligence and compassion Huneven brings to her characters. She holds them all with the utmost tenderness."—Brigitte Frase, Los Angeles Times
Praise for Jamesland
"Michelle Huneven is a writer of extraordinary and thrilling talent, and Jamesland
is a marvel."—Richard Russo"Generosity, humor and tolerance shine in Huneven’s writing."—Michael Harris, Los Angeles Times Book Review
Praise for Round Rock
"Like that other West Coast chronicler of struggling Americans, Raymond Carver, . . . Huneven is not interested in literary pretension or postmodern razzle-dazzle, but in achieving a measure of truth— and her generous, engaging novel does just that."—Valerie Sayers, The New York Times Book Review

I couldn’t sleep and I went into my husband’s office and looked for a boring book to put me to sleep. Oh, there’s Moby Dick, I thought. That’ll do the trick. Five chapters later, I was wide awake and practically shouting with pleasure.
