Reviews

"An extraordinary, often hilarious novel." --The New York Times Book Review"From the very start, Lorrie Moore's generous gifts as a writer have been clear: A wry, distinctive voice, a gift for telling detail." --The New York Times"Anagrams has all the wit and inveigling playfulness of Self-Help, plus an organic sophistication astounding in a first novel." --The Philadelphia Inquirer"A rare novel. . . . Its surface sparkles with wit and humor, but underneath there's a keen intelligence at work, a seriousness of purpose that's deeply touching. Read Anagrams. It will bowl you over." --The Plain Dealer
