Publishers Weekly hailed Dispatch as one of its best books of Summer 2012, saying
Stein possesses a comic’s honesty and sense of timing, simultaneously enchanting and dark, yet never cynical. She’s already published a wonderful debut novel this year, but I think she’s arguably an even better poet.
Vol. 1 Brooklyn raves:
A book as deeply sad as it is perceptively playful, Stein recreates her life, one full of unbounded wisdom and imagination weaving a tapestry of myths, memory, history, and pop culture, that new sort of collective memory we all share.
And Gary Shteyngart has this to say about The Fallback Plan:
Beautiful, funny, thrilling, and true.
Monologue topics: Israel, music, excessive documentation, 9/11, travel, timing, violence, Jesus, Nate Dogg, deities, The Resurrection, research, airport security.
Many thanks, everybody. Enjoy the program…
