This Will Be Difficult to Explain Reviews
"Skibsrud, a poet and author of the Giller Prize-winning first novel The Sentimentalists, brings to these stories a poet's eye and the subtle shadings of some of our best practitioners, including Marilynne Robinson and Alice Munro." - Library Journal
"Skibsrud's economical, poetically aware stories reveal a writer comfortable with the form, and one who requires her readers to think." - Kirkus Reviews
"[Skibsrud's] prose is as taut as Alice Munro's, her plots as spare as Mavis Gallant's. Her characters have startlingly vivid inner lives
Skibsrud's new book is just as assured [as her novel], and it has the same emotional punch." - Toronto Life
"Clearly Johanna Skibsrud is as at home in the short story form
and my expectations have been more than met. I'm more intrigued by this author than ever before, and convinced that Ali Smith was onto something after all." - PickleMeThis
