"In Adventures in Property Management, Chelsea Werner-Jatzke slices open a prototypical apartment complex like a dollhouse or an architectural model, granting us voyeurs access to the lives crowded within. With keen energetic prose, she moves from unit to unit, unpacking the confusion and loneliness of living in spaces dense with other humans—as well as the hope we must sometimes share, for connection and communion with those whose unimaginable lives surround our own." - Matt Bell, author of Scrapper
