An Erotic Sequence
"Maso’s voice is all her own: simultaneously cerebral and sensual, violently romantic and insistently woman-centered."
San Francisco Chronicle
"Maso is gaining a reputation for reshaping language and form in unique, beautiful, experimental yet totally readable ways. She epitomizes all that is great about American literature today."
Los Angeles Times
"Whether she is writing about two women washing lentils or a man’s desire for a woman’s pair of ink-stained hands, Maso charges her very sentences with such sexual energy that form and content literally become one. Reading Aureole is pure pleasure."
"Carole Maso is that rare creature — an original! Her voice and vision are like no one else’s."
