In many ways, Vishnevetskaya's writings are the best cure for our rather common indifference, our selfishness and egocentrism. Moreover, her narrative is really clear, surprisingly free and lively. She uses the language that does not pretend, but the one we speak — or rather the one we should speak. -- Andrey Nemzer, a literary critic
Vishnevetskaya’s Experiences — based not only on my personal evaluation, but also readership success and awards — is one of the most persuasive and compelling instances in the arena of contemporary Russian women’s prose. -- Dmitry Golynko-Volfson, Context literary magazine #15
