Lady Be Good is certainly a beauty in its smearing of Hollywood’s red lipstick, and unquestionably the result of Hilger’s singular voice.” –Caroline Crew in a review featured in The Collagist

“The reader can revel as much in the richness of the lines themselves as in the images they create. There’s a certain timelessness to the collection, or at least a sense of history, as Hilger examines women from Leda to Lauren Bacall.” –Rachel Wooley, “Playing the Role of the Woman: A Review of Lady Be Good” in Atticus Review
