for Marta Byrd:
“The paradox at the heart of [Marta] — her formidable sensitivity and perceptiveness on the one hand, and her spectuacular blindness and capacity for bad choices on the other — make her a memorable protagonist….  It’s amazing and wonderful.”
Jim Shepard, Novelist, Short Story Writer, National Book Award Nominee

“Such great energy!”
John Guare, author of Six Degrees of Separation

for Game:
“St. Clair is a talented writer and a creator of realistic characters; the back-and-forth between Phoebe and Josh makes for compelling reading.”
John Schoenfelder, Editor, Little Brown

“Ann St. Clair is a fine writer. Her characters are the most adventurous, brave and funny people I’ve ever met. There are many things in life we cannot describe – cab rides home through New York, a peculiar summer cocktail party where we meet someone and fall in love. Ann can describe these things, in full color. If you want this experience, read on.”
— Catherine Taylor-Williams, Producing Artistic Director, The Wharton Salon
