Book Review: Science is Sexy in There’s So Much They Haven’t Told You — Siel Ju, The Rumpus

“Who are we, if we mostly don’t exist? Ross presents a more kaleidoscopic vision of our short, mostly mundane lives, forcing us to wonder just how much more they haven’t told us, how many more ways of seeing we have yet to discover.”

Book Review: There’s So Much They Haven’t Told You — Dana Diehl, Heavy Feather Review

“This collection feels like a science textbook that’s been handed down from student to student, scribbled with notes, hearts and dragons penned over topographical maps—transformed into an art object that contains both science and myth. Ross’s stories are smart, heartfelt, and surprising.”

There’s So Much (More) — Melissa Goodrich’s What I’m Reading

“This book makes me less lonely.  This book breaks into homes and bodies full of dysfunction, and looks each character in the eye.  Maybe what’s most moving about Michelle’s stories is they are honest.  They don’t flinch.”

There’s So Much They Haven’t Told You — Melissa Goodrich’s What I’m Reading

“Michelle Ross has given me a lot to think about regarding endings.  Her stories are strong and lyric and potent – and the endings always feel sharp and jarring. I keep turning the page expecting more paragraphs because they END and they do not announce their ending. I am the bird sailing straight into glass. I am the coyote the moment he steps off the cliff, before he sees the abyss beneath him. I feel like I’m standing on the earth, then realize I’m not.”

Book Review: There’s So Much They Haven’t Told You — Nick Kocz, The Collagist

“Ross excels on many levels. Her lyrical, image-rich prose consistently startles. She has penned some serious, brave, thoughtful, and, at times, very emotional stories that steer clear of sentimentality.”
