Raves and Reviews

As a fairy tale collection, this is similar in style to Hans Christian Andersen. As an artwork collection, it mirrors surreal painters like Leonora Carrington. But as a contemporary catalog Binette Schroeder's Well of Stories stands on its own merits.

– New York Journal of Books

There is a lot of Binette Schroeder's personality in Lupinchen and Laura, these idiosyncratic, autonomous strong personalities who want something from the world in a gentle, yet determined way.
