Description

“Searingly original, brutal, unique. Tara Ison is unquestionably an important new voice in American fiction.” —Carolyn See, author of The Handyman

“A fascinating and wonderfully evocative first novel about life on Alcatraz – seen through the eyes of a little girl growing up on the Rock in the 1950s. A compelling story, richly evoking a time and place.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Ison has a gift…the fearsome plight of Olivia, who narrates much of the novel, is never simplified. It’s through her radiant consciousness that Ison’s novel achieves a natural, basic morality.” —Publishers Weekly

“Disturbing, dark, and original. A stunning first novel.” —Feminist Bookstore News

“What makes A Child out of Alcatraz particularly memorable is its unique venue…the author paints a searing portrait of an American family that might have been typical had fate and history not intervened.” —Glamour

“This is a sad, often beautiful novel… Ison renders the slow disintegration of a once-vital woman, and its effect on her daughter, with perfect heartbreaking despair. A provocative story.” —Boston Book Review

“A Child out of Alcatraz is an energetic, captivating novel…we are left wanting more of her because that voice—so rare and flawless—is a crystalline sound one doesn’t want to end.” —Bloomsbury Review
