Transference Talk:

  • BookLife Prize (finalist): “Kate Jonuska’s Transference is a riveting tale of telepathy and suburban angst, with characters who reveal unexpected depths and challenge reader expectations as the story unfolds. Despite some powerful forays into darkness and despair, the book is ultimately about hope, redemption, and making human connections in a difficult world.” — Tim Pratt, BookLife judge and author of The Wrong StarsRags & Bones and more.
  • BookLife Prize (semi-finalist): “Deftly rendered… Despite familiar elements, this novel feels fresh. Jonuska flips the trope of the solid mentor/flawed student on its head.”
  • The Denver Post (staff pick): “Transference has delightfully despicable characters who earn their laughs… Jonuska (who has written for The Denver Post in the past) has laid fertile ground for comedy with the mind-reading premise. Those comic twists and turns — some predictable, others surprising — endear Janet and Verbenk to the reader and, eventually, to one another.” – Jenn Fields
  • The Daily Camera (Boulder, CO): “For all the conventional wisdom about ‘likable’ characters, unlikable characters can work if they are interesting, and these two are. We never move too far beyond their most salient traits, but Jonuska has a journalist’s ear for snappy dialogue… (and) a flair for punchy, often cynical, humor.” – Clay Bonnyman Evans, reviewer and author of Bones of My Grandfather: Reclaiming a Lost Hero of WWII
