What People Are Saying…
"Dallas Woodburn’s collection of interwoven stories shows real maturity about the complexities of relationships of all kinds, and she doesn’t shirk from the painful experiences of her characters. Even so, the writing is so lively and the scenes so engaging that the reader gets to move fluidly between heft and lightness. A terrific debut!" -- Aimee Bender, author of The Color Master and The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake
"Dallas Woodburn’s Woman, Running Late, in a Dress is striking for its formal range and its fresh take on the old subjects — love, death, and the death of love, yearning and loss in all their varieties. There’s nothing predictable here. No neat epiphanies or easy-to-diagram plots. These stories blaze their own trails. The characters are core optimists dealing, for the first time or all over again, with the tragedy of the world. Your heart will go out to them, and to this extraordinary debut collection."
-- Porter Shreve, author of The End of the Book and The Obituary Writer
"Woman, Running Late, in a Dress is a stunning collection, its stories full of tragedy and grace in equal measure. Deeply moving." -- Vanessa Hua, author of A River of Stars
"Dallas Woodburn writes with rare insight and compassion about the aching glory of being young. These skillfully connected stories still resonate long after they’re read."
-- Hilma Wolitzer, author of An Available Man and The Doctor's Daughter
