Reviews

"The hard realities associated with growth, change, love, and death affect all, but the repercussions seem especially gritty in this working-class setting. Gologorsky's writing is clean and spare as she gives each character her or his own specific voice and presents an unflinching, caring view of the world, well worth our time to see." -Danise Hoover, Booklist

"The author treats each singular story line with insight, compassion, and no sentimentality." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Unflinching, piercing, Gologorsky looks straight into the face of class in this country, capturing the reverberations across generations of who really fights our wars, who really serves our coffee, who really gets up in the dark to wipe the diners' counter clean. This book is filled with an array of characters whose bravery is unsung, women who persevere with a dignity unseen by many, until Gologorsky pulls the curtain back and allows us in." -Elizabeth Strout, author of Olive Kitteridge

"Like her acclaimed first novel, The Things We Do to Make it Home, Stop Here explores the lives of working-class women (struggling to make ends meet at a roadside diner in Long Island) through the lens of war, destruction, loss, and economic struggle. In simple and striking prose, Gologorsky weaves each woman's story together to form a complete picture of the tragedies and triumphs of four ordinary friends and coworkers against the backdrop of a nation at war." -Veteran Feminists of America

"Notice them-that is one of thoughts I carried with me after finishing this fine novel-they are more interesting than you imagine, and might know some things that you badly need to learn." -Akshay Ahuja, The Occasional Review
