Editorial Reviews for Falling Back to One
"This first-rate novel unfolds linearly while taking revealing side roads along the way. The more you read, the more you learn—and the more you want to know... Mason writes honestly. She doesn't shirk from the hard truths each principal is forced to confront. Her style of grainy reportage, accented with occasional lyricism, delivers emotion that never seems forced or false. Plus she captures the milieu of time and place well. Best of all, she creates characters you care about in a story that holds your interest from beginning to end."—Joe Kilgore, The US Review of Books
"Falling Back to One is an important and challenging story that slowly works its way into the heart.… [F]illed with gritty and unvarnished truths, set in 1970s New York City, this quietly complex read examines the unending quest to find meaning in life—and peace with one's self."
