Praise for Swarm to Glory
“The stories in Swarm to Glory are often suspenseful, always beautifully written, subtle, and witty. They are populated by unique characters who at the same time managed to remind me of people I know. Garnett Kilberg Cohen shows us the world we inhabit with startling clarity, beauty, and memorable strangeness. This collection is the work of a very gifted writer at the apex of her lyrical and psychological powers.
--Christine Sneed, author of Little Known Facts, and Portraits of a Few of the People I've Made Cry, Winner of the 2009 AWP Grace Paley Prize
“Reading a Garnett Kilberg Cohen story is like chatting across a small table with a voluble, smart, sly, warm-hearted friend. A wicked strain of humor fortifies the often vulnerable protagonists, rendering them formidable as well as dear. What they do and what they think is unpredictable and illuminating. Kilberg Cohen's third book of stories, it is a delight.”
--Sharon Solwitz, Professor at Purdue University and author of Bloody Mary and Blood and Milk
