Helen DeWitt

American writer

DeWitt pushes against the limitations of the novel as a form; reading her, one wants to push against the limitations of one’s own brain.

—Miranda Popkey, The Paris Review

An intellectual powerhouse, laugh-out-loud funny in unexpected ways.

—Ilana Teitelbaum, The Huffington Post

Her books assert (and often attest) that a work of fiction can encompass many kind of knowledge - probability theory, scatterplots of data, tables of non-Roman alphabets - without compromising its form.

—Lindsay Gail, Los Angeles Review of Books
