"Heartbreaking. . . . Mordantly funny. . . . Takes us on a rare flight of self-transcendence. . . . Moments of recognition bring jolts like electric shocks." -- The New York Review of Books

"[Moore] deftly paints with negative space, releasing tremendous poignancy. . . . A vibrant and nimble display of Moore's signature wit." -- San Francisco Chronicle
"Ms Moore's writing glides. She describes the mundane with precision and grace. . . . Bark simultaneously honours and regrets the messiness of human relationships. Ms Moore is like one of her characters: 'sternness in one eye and gentleness in the other.'" -- The Economist
"One of the finest short story writers in the country." -- Los Angeles Review of Books
"[Moore's] writing contains multitudes, mixed in exacting proportions, which is to say: this potpourri is utterly and totally unique. . . . There really is no one quite like her." -- The New Republic
