REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..Gregorini presents her characters as recognizably human balls of complexity, nudging but never forcing them toward a sad, beautiful conclusion..”
by Chris Packham [Village Voice]
“..a lack of development - in both characters and storyline - will likely leave you feeling duped..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
“..mixes the ludicrous and the pretentious in a story about mommy issues gone wild..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
