    One thought on “My Radio Radio”

    1. Love it. My Radio Radio has some themes in common with Glorybound, Van Eerden's previous novel - clearly, she has something to say about how her characters negotiate their own inheritance from the spiritual communities they grow up in. But the two books go about things in such different ways, I was halfway through this one before I made that connection. While Glorybound spelled out the beginnings and endings of its characters' main arcs within a handful of pages, My Radio Radio focuses instead o [...]

    2. There are many elements that must be in a book before I call it amazing, chiefly that I can't stop thinking about it. MY RADIO RADIO got under my skin and all the characters, but especially Omi Ruth Wincott and Tracie Casteel wormed their way into my heart. This coming of age story set in a small town in Indiana at the "Dunlap Fellowship of All Things in Common" was beautifully written with layer upon layer of emotion, revealing what life was like for the people living in the poor religious comm [...]

    3. This is a beautifully written and fresh take on the coming-of-age story. Jessie Van Eerden’s writing is not experienced so much as reading but more like listening to music with your eyes. Her language her language is so carefully and perfectly chosen, and her characters are full of life and soul.

    4. A coming-of-age story, My Radio Radio takes the young narrator Omi Ruth on a literary journey from age twelve to thirteen, death through death and rebirth, naivete toward a sort of wisdom. It's 1986. Omi lives in a communal small-town-Indiana church, calls her parents by name, and knows nothing of normal familial love. Her story is one of loss not properly grieved and yearning not fully understood. This story surprises and, at times, disturbs. Beautifully written, the novel will makes it readers [...]

    5. Thank God my husband came across this gifted writer in Image Journal. And that he read Glorybound and then My Radio Radio and was so moved by both novels that I was curious and read both back to back. In my opinion My Radio Radio is the strongest of the two. The characters' layered lives are so earthy and RAW, flawed, fractured, and in most cases darkened and yet LIGHT.  Even if you don't like or are repulsed by a character, in most cases you wish you could hold their hand for a moment once V [...]

    6. Jessie van Eerden has achieved something remarkable with this book. Readers are invited into the home of a religious commune that has seen brighter days and are treated to the coming of age--in the best and most complicated sense--of young Omi Ruth. The plot is intriguing and at times heart wrenching. We're also given real moments of joy, as experienced by Omi. Van Eerden's prose is somehow both tough and delicate, while maintaining a beautiful lyrical sensibility.
