Tell Me a Riddle exists in the realm in which craftsmanship is transformed into mystery, and criticism comes close to irrelevance.
Granville Hicks - Saturday Review of Literature

Tillie... invented a literary tradition of her own...every line is measured, compressed, resonant, stripped bare, so that paragraph after paragraph achieves the shocking brevity and power of the best poems.
Scott Turow

Out of poverty and hardship (Olsen) reveals with compassion, depth, and a passionate economy of language a working-class America that few writers have known or realized existed.
