Fascinating and challenging short prose pieces in a splendid new book.

Grandmother Divided By Monkey Equals Outer Space (Valley Press, 2015)


Nora Chassler’s extraordinary Grandmother Divided by Monkey Equals Outer Space breaks all moulds. Set in 1980s New York, it is a triumphant vindication of the edgy, eccentric demotic as a compelling narrative voice.

William Boyd, The Guardian

Miss Thing (Two Ravens Press, 2010)


'What is truly enjoyable about the book is the old-fashioned love story at its heart. When I say old-fashioned, I mean somewhere between Nabokov and Bret Easton Ellis ... Chassler's characters elicit real emotion. They also make you laugh out loud. Their individual stories grip you to the last and leave you wanting more.'

– The Herald
