Reviews
"In their ethnicity, their Greekness, they transcend culture, obliterate boundaries with specificity and power. Shocking in their simplicity and unpretentiousness, they speak to us directly, like the diary of a lost relative." —The Salt Lake Tribune

"She carries literary dexterity and grace to its ultimate...Being rooted in her people, she is able to probe deeply into their personal experiences and foibles, with compassion and understanding." —The Greek American

"Papanikolas is lovingly precise in her descriptions of clothing, hair styles, photographs, jewelry, food, furniture and decor. These images appear much like variegated stones at the bottom of a clear stream. They dazzle, define, and anchor." —The Deseret News, (Salt Lake City)
