"Haunting, lyrical, entirely absorbing, Sweeping Up Glass deserves a place on the shelf next to classics like True Grit and To Kill a Mockingbird."--O, The Oprah Magazine

"Carolyn D. Wall has created an engaging character in Olivia Harker and a complex and densely interconnected community in Aurora, Kentucky. Her evocative prose recalls the regional style of such authors as Flannery O'Connor, Harper Lee, and Eudora Welty."--Mystery Scene

"Wall gives her heroine a powerful voice in this haunting debut."--Kirkus Reviews

"A real stunner, with plot and characters the like of which you've never seen."--MLB News

"Highly recommended for all collections." --Library Journal, starred review

"This is a perfect little book, like a head-on collision between Flannery O'Connor and Harper Lee, with a bit of Faulkner on a mystery binge. I loved every page of it."--Joe R. Landsdale, Edgar-award winner

"A powerful novel...features unforgettable characters placed in a terrifying situation....this is a fine novel which deserves a wide audience."--Mystery News

"The strong, fresh narrative voice pulls the reader in and doesn't let go in Wall's stunning debut." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The suspense is gripping, the danger is very real, and the reader gets caught up in Wall's powerful, moving debut." --Library Journal, starred review

"This debut novel does so much more than traditional, tightly focused mysteries. It has a powerfully, sometimes uncomfortably, realized setting; characters who seem drawn from life; and a wide-ranging plot, bursting with complications...A gripping story and a truly original voice." --Booklist

"This extraordinary debut novel...is filled with arresting images, bitter humor, and characters with palpable physical presence. The fresh voice of that clear-eyed narrator reminded me of Scout in Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. I literally could not put it down." --Boston Globe
