Review:

"A stunner of a literary thriller. Grade A-" "-Entertainment Weekly"--Entertainment Weekly

""Visitation Street" explores a community's response to tragedy with crystalline prose, a dose of the uncanny, and an unblinking eye for both human frailty and resilience. Marvelous."--Deborah Harkness, bestselling author of "A Discovery of Witches"

""Visitation Street" [is] beautiful, haunting. Ivy Pochoda brings forth the full palette of human emotions in this gripping urban drama, a story that hurts you on one page and gives you hope on the next. A marvelous novel."--Michael Koryta, award winning author of "So Cold the River"

"Visitation Street has a wonderfully eerie and intriguing premise...but it's the evocation of place, the spot-on rendering of a diverse cast of characters, and the poetic pitch of the writing that elevates the book into the sphere of literature."--Library Journal

"A powerfully beautiful novel" - Marilyn Stasio, "New York Times Book Review"--New York Times Book Review

"Utterly transporting."-"People"--People

""Visitation Street" is urban opera writ large. Gritty and magical, filled with mystery, poetry and pain, Ivy Pochoda's voice recalls Richard Price, Junot Diaz, and even Alice Sebold, yet it's indelibly her own."--Dennis Lehane

A powerfully beautiful novel - Marilyn Stasio, "New York Times Book Review"--New York Times Book Review"

A stunner of a literary thriller. Grade A- "-Entertainment Weekly"--Entertainment Weekly"
