“Casper has emerged as an important new talent. And her voice is a welcome paradox; it is fresh and original, yet confident and mature. . . . Soundly built, The Reconstruction establishes the foundation of a brilliant new literary career for Casper.”—Barbara Wickens

“When Claudia Casper’s first novel, The Reconstruction, was published back in 1996, I thought I had died and gone to reading heaven. . . . The Continuation of Love By Other Means . . . is every bit as satisfying and exotic. . . . The Continuation of Love By Other Means (my choice for the best title of ’03) is a skillfully written story of intertwined lives filled with love and dislike.”—Andrew Armitage

“The richness and sensuality of Margaret’s thoughts and the poise and beauty of the language in this book keep it moving. . . . In this respect Claudia Casper’s novel is as successful as the model Margaret Fisher finishes on time for the opening.”—George McWhirter (on The Reconstruction)

“Certain books make you put them down, midpage, and ponder. Claudia Casper’s The Continuation of Love by Other Means made me meditate on all the grey areas: the fine line between idealist and zealot, the point where self-interest becomes selfish, the language-less gap where men and women cease to understand each other. . . . a powerfully imagined tale . . . . Recommend to recently divorced friends.”—Ivan Coyote
