Reviews

"Gorgeous. Very, very funny in a knowing wry way but so tender, so beautiful. I loved all the characters."
--Marian Keyes, author of Grown Ups

Katherine Heiny's books feel like spending time with a smart, funny and beloved friend who always has a million interesting things to talk about but always wants to know about you, too. She is a charming and insightful and unique writer and Early Morning Riser is every bit as good as Standard Deviation, if not better."
--Lisa Jewell, author of The Family Upstairs

A 'modern Jane Austen'... [Heiny] unites stylistic verve with laugh-out-loud humor, and is a perfect balance of literary and accessible.. I'd read the back of a cereal box if it was written by Katherine Heiny.
--Forbes

"Early Morning Riser is a charming, witty and heartwarming novel about life and love in a small town that is destined to improve your mood and restore your faith in humankind. Katherine Heiny -- who has long been a personal favorite writer of mine -- is at the height of her storytelling powers. Every sentence is a treat!"
--Elin Hilderbrand, bestselling author of 28 Summers

Katherine Heiny is as warm and moving as Anne Tyler at her best, as funny as David Sedaris at his most hilarious, and one of the truly original voices in current fiction. Her wonderful second novel is a much-needed reminder that no matter how flawed, foolish, and downright annoying people can be, they're still capable of immense kindness and outrageously unselfish love. Be forewarned: reading Earlier Morning Riser could make you believe we're not necessarily all doomed.
--Stephen McCauley, author of My Ex-Life

Glorious. I love how it evokes the rhythm of life in all its joy and ordinariness and chaos. I loved the dialogue, the relationships. I love the one-liners, the humour, the gorgeous detail, the food, the innermost thoughts, and the love.
--Nina Stibbe, author of Reasons to Be Cheerful

The author of Single, Carefree, Mellow (2015) and Standard Deviation (2017) brings us new characters to fall in love with in this novel about love, family, and community. It's easy to adore the characters Heiny conjures in her novels and short stories. They tend to be quirky and smart, caring and passionate... Heiny's book finds beauty and humor in connection and community, family and friendship, and the way love can develop and deepen over time. A heartwarming novel with a small-town vibe that sparkles like wine sipped with friends under backyard fairy lights.
⁠--Kirkus, starred

Early Morning Riser is a joy of a novel. Beautiful, poignant and laugh-out-loud funny. It's the kind of book you'll have no choice but to stay up reading all night, and then you'll be sad when you've run out of pages. Katherine Heiny's voice is unlike anyone else's, and it's just what the world needs now.
⁠--J. Courtney Sullivan, bestselling author of Friends and Strangers

Early Morning Riser is wise, sad and barkingly funny. Katherine Heiny writes brilliantly about what we mean by the word 'family' and her novel is loving without being soppy and warm without being cozy--I didn't want it to end.
⁠--Lissa Evans, author of Old Baggage
