"Aliza Ross's raw, pulsing debut is at its most fundamental, a deliberate inquiry into the complexities of female desire and where those appetites intersect with circumstance and will. Read it." -Jill Essbaum, author of Hausfrau"Asymmetrical Woman is entertaining and sexy. It is a page turner, with each chapter thoroughly drenched in a sexiness that will require a frozen margarita nearby." -Nikki Moustaki, author of The Bird Market of Paris"Aliza Ross has more talent, passion and balls than most writers. Her novel hopefully is the first of many in what I predict will be a magnificent career." -Robert Kalich, author of the national bestseller The Handicapper"A no-holds-barred capturing of a marriage and what's really going on in the mind of a guilty pleasure seeker, the reading of which is its own guilty pleasure." -Andy Cowan, author of Banging My Head Against the Wall"Asymmetrical Woman is a tantalizing novel, one you will read cover to cover with both fascination and contempt for its characters, and adoration for the author who created them." -Eric Arbitman, author of Unutterable"Alix, the agonized and antagonizing protagonist of Asymmetrical Woman, is a fascinating female blend of Philip Roth's Alexander Portnoy and Nathan Zuckerman-with her own enticing idiosyncrasies. If you're addicted to Philip Roth's characters you'll love the trials, tribulations and triumphs of the alluring Alix. I predict a long literary future for Alix and her creator." -Barbara S. Held, author of Stop Smiling, Start Kvetching
