"Her gift for capturing the nugget of a relationship in a single backward glance works beautifully in this illustrated memoir." - The Chicago Tribune

"The Secret Life of Objects is a lean, brilliant, playful memoir." - The San Francisco Chronicle

"Her memoir reflects on everyday objects such as a cup, a ring... From these memories comes a whole life story." - Reader's Digest

"A unique, evocative memoir...written with all the wild bloom of imagination that fiction brings to the table." - The Quivering Pen

"This endearing memoir takes an assortment of otherwise ordinary possessions and turns it into a series of delicate, resonant stories." - More Magazine

"'Sometimes things shatter, ' Dawn Raffel writes in The Secret Life of Objects. 'More often they just fade.' But in this evocative memoir, moments from the past do not fade-they breathe on the page, rendering a striking portrait of a woman through her connections to the people she's loved, the places she been, what's been lost, and what remains. In clear, beautiful prose, Raffel reveals the haunting qualities of the objects we gather, as well as the sustaining and elusive nature of memory itself." - Samuel Ligon, author of Drift and Swerve: Stories

"Dawn Raffel puts memories, people and secrets together like perfectly set gems in these shimmering stories, which are a delight to read. Every detail is exquisite, every character beautifully observed, and every object becomes sacred in her kind, capable hands. I savored every word. - Priscilla Warner, author of Learning to Breathe - My Yearlong Quest to Bring Calm to My Life
