Critical Praise For WHEN SHE SLEEPS by Leora Krygier:

“An engaging, lyrical, dreamlike duet between two complex young women, one a Californian, the other Vietnamese, whose lives are connected through love and history, and a single man, their mutual father. Their intricate, often dangerous relationships with their mothers, the women who shared him, are traced with fierce insight and quiet delicacy.” Janet Fitch, author of “White Oleander.”

“This novel …..uses the dualities of light and dark, dreaming and waking, and East and West to remarkable ends.” Library Journal

“Krygier’s clear prose brings close the drama of survival, the weight of it, ‘of those left to sweep up what is left when war is done.’” Booklist

“Elegant …. Krygier portrays the tentative steps by which two young women discover and come to terms with their identities.” Kirkus Reviews

“A lyrical gem of a novel, about dreams and like a dream. Krygier enchants and entraps the reader in a universe of entangled families and entangled emotions.” Andrew Nagorski, author of “Last Stop Vienna,” and senior editor, Newsweek.

“Beautiful. Krygier has a perfect sense of place, relationships, and emotions. I was pulled in to the lives of the two sisters, from the first page to last.” -Bob Stone, author of “Confessions of a Civil Servant.”

“Krygier has penned that rarest of literary jewels, imaginative literary fiction. “When She Sleeps” is truly the stuff dreams are made of.” Carolyn Howard Johnson, author of “This is the Place” and “Harkening.”

“A gorgeous, engrossing novel. Krygier paints a dream landscape, weaving two cultures and creating one language.” Adele Scheele, Ph.D., author of “Career Strategies for Working Women.”

“Leora Krygier is a talented author who brilliantly and seamlessly weaves together fantasy and reality. “When She Sleeps,” a story of two half-sisters, products of war-torn Vietnam, is told with compassion, sensitivity and understanding.” Naomi Rosenblatt, author of “Wrestling with Angels. What Genesis Teaches Us About Our Spiritual Identity, Sexuality and Personal Relationships.”

“Krygier has been compared to Faulkner, and the moving prose of this title shows why. It’s a tragic tale, and it’s a serious subject but Krygier gives it a gossamer quality that makes us want to live in her character’s dreams, only to rivet us with a desperate end. Few authors can pull off that trick.” Bradford Pilcher, literary editor, Jewsweek.
