Reviews of Remembering the Bones

Kerry Clare, Pickle Me This, 1 November 2007
"The story of her most extraordinary ordinary life, and my heart was wrung by the joy and the sadness alike."
Susann Cokal, The New York Times, 13 January 2008
"These carefully observed and beautifully described moments put flesh on the bones of Itani's plot and make the novel breathe."
James Urquhart, The Independent, 2 March 2008
"Itani's prose is lucid and engaging, but her faux-dramatic context mocks the measured substance of her story."
Gayle Weiswasser, Everyday I Write the Book, 19 April 2009
"The writing was simple but powerful."
Charlene Martel, The Literary Word, 5 January 2011
"A truly beautiful book that will remain on my bookshelf for many years to come"
