"What elevates this above the standard rom-com is the language: idiosyncratic, inventive, and ornate . . . [Anna Fishbeyn is a] compelling new voice." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Fishbeyn's thoughtful debut offers an in-depth exploration into an individual?s struggles with conflicting desires and expectations as well as a distinctive perspective on the immigrant experience."-- Booklist

"The Matrimonial Flirtations of Emma Kaulfield is a brash, flamboyant and highly impressive debut novel. [Fishbeyn's]...verbal dexterity would be impressive coming from any writer. Considering that Fishbeyn achieved it as a nonnative English speaker is astonishing. It may sound hyperbolic, but as I read Emma Kaulfield, the word that kept running through my head was 'Nabokovian.'"-- The Clyde Fitch Report

"a hilariously sexy romp through New York City?s singles scene. A Jane Austin tale told with Nora Ephron's bite. How Sex in the City's Carrie Bradshaw might have sounded if she'd been born with a Russian Jewish mother (and grandmother). Terrific fun." -- Janis Cooke Newman, author of A Master Plan for Rescue
