Frottage, a story told in letters from an attitudinal lady to her shrink, is wickedly funny, yet simultaneously wise and moving. A great read, and you could end up saving yourself a lot of $200 sessions.
Even As We Speak is one of those works where the sum of the parts is greater than the whole. What glistening little gems the various parts are, written in a sparse almost zen style. They add up.
—David Seidler, author of The King’s Speech

These novellas—two powerful, two very different stories—are beautifully crafted, sometimes erotic, and always lyrical. What a wonderful surprise to discover a new voice, a teller of contemporary American stories that are assured and eloquent, witty, yet truthful to the point of heartbreak.
—François von Hurter, Bitter Lemon Press, London

Compelling, beautifully written, surprising—Houghton’s characters are ingeniously complex.
—Robin Amos Kahn, playwright, Scrambled Eggs

Two literary bullets, packed with quiet desperation, and aimed precisely at the reader’s heart.
—Jane Dobija, editor of Corridors Magazine
