"in this sophisticated novel, [Reilly] focuses on the ebb and flow of relationships. They’re rendered with nuance, though Reilly throws in a pinch of distanced amusement, and horror, at some crazier reactions to these disturbing events. Many positions are thoughtfully portrayed here, even as they yank people apart."

“On the occasion of the re-entry of literature, great names of French or foreign literature flock to bookshelves. The authors make a tour of the cultural programs, talking to all goes to sell their books, sometimes very good, sometimes disappointing. But literary re-entry is also the occasion to discover pearls, authors unknown to the general public, the first novels that announce a promising career. This is the case of the Storms, the first book by Meg Little Reilly. ”
