“Ivelisse Rodriguez conceives exquisite misery and makes alchemy of hopelessness in her debut short story collection Love War Stories(Feminist Press). In these tales, febrile adoration is returned with a slap, infidelity, and duplicity. Characters in this collection wade, and sometimes drown, in pools of delusion, eyes fixed on perceptions of idealized love. Rodriguez is adamant about drawing our attention to the ways love manifests, tenderly at first then twisting menacingly.”  — Electric Literature
