Azareen Van Der Vliet Oloomi
"Zebra is exile as education, history as passion, life as literature, and literature as death."

A Touch of Jen (2021)
Beth Morgan
"Touch of Jen is hipster noir, acerbic social parable and slasher gore-fest: as if Patricia Highsmith, Chris Kraus, and Ann Quin all crashed a Hamptons beach party, and John Carpenter dropped in with some weed."
