Published Reviews

"Washburn makes the nerve wracking seriousness of childhood very funny."

Variety

"Sweet coming-of-age drama..."

Jason Zinoman, The New York Times

"Washburn's piece is quite funny, and her writing keenly observes the two teens..."

Les Gutman, CurtainUp

"The unforced lyricism of Anne Washburn's October/November seems especially warm and welcome."

Robert Kent, The Village Voice

"Adolescence...there's lyricism, humor, and a visceral understanding in Ms. Washburn's snapshot of it."

Laura Collins-Hughes, The New York Sun
