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
