The Chicago Tribune recommends Trip Through Your Wires.
"Traumatized by her experience in Mexico, Carey Halpern is trying to snap out of her Prufrock-like trance. She's smart and she's funny. Now, if she can just solve her boyfriend's murder. Sarah Layden is in complete control of time, language, and narrative in this beautiful story that has everything to do with how we live with our pasts. You won't be able to put this book down to find out how Carey remembers who did what and to read Layden’s next great sentence."
-Margaret McMullan, author of Sources of Light
"Trip Through Your Wires is compulsively readable." -Porter Shreve, author of The End of the Book

-Michael Martone, author of Four for a Quarter
“Trip Through Your Wires is a welcome antidote to despair. Sarah Layden is the real thing.”
