							A stunning, provocative novel, Little Nothing is the story of Pavla, a child scorned for her physical deformity, hunted and tormented as a woman, whose passion and salvation lies in her otherworldly ability to transform herself and the world around her.

“Silver spins a fable-like tale of two star-crossed lovers in Eastern Europe in the early twentieth century….Pavla and Danilo circle each other but never quite come together until another startling transformation rips them apart, sending Danilo on a quest to find his lost love. Silver has created a gorgeously rendered, imaginative, magical yarn.” - Booklist

"In Little Nothing, Marisa Silver doesn’t waver...she delivers a tale as mysterious as anything the Grimm Brothers might have collected...Little Nothing celebrates not only the unruly and lost parts of all our lives but also the possibility of their reordering and comprehension." - Thomas Curwen, Los Angeles Times

"Little Nothing weaves together the historical travesties faced by women and those seen as 'different' with broader themes of love and loss." (from "20 New Books You'll Need for Your Shelf in Fall 2016") - The Huffington Post

"Silver's book is magical and parabolic, but it doesn't have the stark, curious language of a fairy tale. Instead, she adorns her fable with earthy imagery, crafting a rich setting and lovable characters." - The Huffington Post

"[Marisa Silver] delivers a tale as mysterious as anything the Grimm Brothers might have collected..." - Los Angeles Times

"Marisa Silver's beguiling new novel, "Little Nothing," is a powerful exploration of the relationship between our changeable bodies and our just as malleable identities." - The New York Times
