Editorial reviews (3 reviews)


Through some final exuberant sleight of hand, Maazel rigs her convoluted plot so that the endpoint — in which love triumphs, briefly — is both poignant and unpredictable.

If there’s one thing this novel wants to remind me, it’s that demanding that the world fit exactly to my expectations is a good way to end up lonely.

Maazel will never be accused of being maudlin—her writing is brash and ruthless—but there is a desperate, bloody heart pumping life through Woke Up Lonely, and the terrifying and elusive aim of her characters is wretchedly simple: make the leap from being observed to being connected.
