“A witty, modern-day take on the Jekyll-and-Hyde theme.”
(Anna Mantzaris, SF Gate)
“A delightful twist on the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde tale, but instead of a battle of good and evil, Becca finds herself in a much more captivating battle with her twin. It is an astonishing work of imagination.” (Pat Craig, Contra Costa Times)
“What Eberhadt has done is effectively molded a woman whose mental state of disarray can be read as a metaphor for everyone’s occasional bouts with delirium. We have been there; that’s why Becca’s temporary insanity is so funny, so real.”
(Ben Siegel, Buffalo News)
