M.B. Goffstein

Across the Sea

“The singular charm of Goffstein’s . . . stories and drawings makes her one of the few modern author-illustrators who are assured classic status.”Publishers Weekly

“Goffstein is a minimalist, but her text and pictures carry the same emotional freight as William Blake’s admonishment to see the world in a grain of sand and eternity in an hour.”

“M.B. Goffstein is one of the finest illustrator/writers of our time. Like porcelain there is more to her work than meets the eye. Beneath the delicacy and fragility is a core of astounding strength.”
Washington Post Book World

“A book by M.B. Goffstein is a beautifully simple and simply beautiful thing.”The New York Times Book Review
