Industry reviews
"Striking just the right balance between lush language and graceful storytelling, this impressive first novel depicts a young woman seeking to escape the scars of her past."
Kirkus Reviews (04/15/2001)

"[JUNIPER TREE BURNING] can be maddeningly long-winded [but] her big, fiery howl of a book commands interest despite its excess baggage....[W]hat...makes Ms. Long's debut a powerful one is the sheer brazenness and gusto with which Jennie is brought to life on the page."
New York Times Book Review - Janet Maslin (06/18/2001)

"Long's intricate flashback structure works...."
New Yorker (07/23/2001)

"...Long describes the hardships of growing up hippie with whirlwind verbosity and occasional virtuosity. All her details are distinctly vintage and, to varying degrees, distinctly unpleasant. And that quickly becomes a problem: because Jennie's emotional palette is so monochromatic, her catalog of gripes is ultimately more exhausting than endearing."
New York Times Book Review - Louisa Kamps (08/05/2001)
