Once You Go Back, blurbs

Mary Gaitskill: "Lonely, understated and heart-breaking, Once You Go Back will haunt you like a familiar face that has emerged and then fallen back into a dream."

Darcey Steinke: "In Once You Go Back, Douglas A. Martin tells a story of a sister, a brother and their complicated love for each other inside a family nuanced by both love and violence. In his careful prose Martin lays out the details of childhood, vibrant and fearing, with a sure hand and a big heart."
