Praise for Spoiled

“Wise and cryptic…Intriguing…(Smart, apt and slightly unexpected)…Sharply insightful.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

"I was completely captivated by the keenly observed, superbly written stories in Spoiled. Caitlin Macy's characters are educated, strong-willed, and sometimes difficult girls and women who alternate, as all of us do, between lying to themselves and facing the truth; Macy's depiction of them, set against a very contemporary backdrop of class, gender, urbanism, and ambition, is so entertaining that it's easy to overlook how well-crafted this collection is. I'm hugely impressed and plan to recommend Spoiled to all my friends."
—Curtis Sittenfeld, author of American Wife
