"STUNNING FICTION...A narrative that flows like a river through deep, quiet pools into deadly white water. Dive in at the first chance... Rest assured that this novel will break through to be heard."
"Papaya Myths is as heart-warming as it is horrifying, and Scott skillfully controls these conflicting emotions to maximize the drama of her first novel. Scott...is not afraid to use the full arsenal of the English language to illustrate her work, from the poetry of her prose to the richness of her vocabulary."
The Middlesex Beat
"Scott's narrative percolates along with good use of imagery and invention....It's more than creative--it's often a bit ingenious."
