"Brim­ming with wise and com­pas­sion­ate com­men­tary on a pletho­ra of con­cerns: cul­tur­al­ly-imposed gen­der roles, the role of pub­lic and pri­vate mem­o­ry, and the dys­func­tions that dri­ve fam­i­lies apart ... And the Bride Closed the Door offers its read­ers all the more rea­son to mourn the loss of Matalon’s bold, uncom­pro­mis­ing voice."
