About Beth Alvarado
 Praise:  "Anthropologies is an epic effort of personal anthropology rendered in bright washes of detail-rich, super-lush remembrance." 
    -- Eula Biss,
                Notes from No Man's Land.

Of Not a Matter of Love: "Alvarado's is a formidable talent, wise and witty and unflinching.  To read her fiction is to understand two terrible truths: that humans hardly ever understand each other, and that we will persist relentlessly in an attempt to do so. This is serious, beautiful work."
          --Antonya Nelson, Bound
