Reviews

"T贸ib铆n ... [is] his generation's most gifted writer of love's complicated, contradictory power."--Floyd Skoot, Los Angeles Times
"A classical coming-of-age story, pure, unsensationalized, quietly profound... There are no antagonists in this novel, no psychodramas, no angst. There is only the sound of a young woman slowly and deliberately stepping into herself, learning to make and stand behind her choices, finding herself."--Pam Houston, O, the Oprah Magazine
"Reading T贸ib铆n is like watching an artist paint one small stroke after another until suddenly the finished picture emerges to shattering effect.... Brooklyn stands comparison with Henry James's The Portrait of a Lady."--The Times Literary Supplement (U.K.)
"[A] triumph... One of those magically quiet novels that sneak up on readers and capture their imaginations."--USA Today
