How rare is the writer who truly understands invisibility: the invisibility of being young and the very different sort that plagues those grown old; the fraught invisibility of motherhood and that of being a girl in this world who is disappearing from the inside out. Kirsten Sundberg Lunstrum sees
these people, gives them form and substance through language that is graceful and nuanced, at times humorous, nearly always compassionate, often (enough) hopeful. A beautiful, deeply compelling collection.
—Lori Ostlund, author of The Bigness of the World
The best short story collections are artful works of juxtaposition, and Sundberg Lunstrum is definitely aware of how the stories in Wreckage build on each other, one after the other. Even if none of the stories are linked by characters or plots, their thematic ties are so strong that Wreckage reads like a novel.
