Reviews

"Spellbinding."--The New York Times Book Review

"In a tale that rings strikingly true, [Anna] Quindlen captures both the beauty and the breathtaking fragility of family life."--People

"We come to love this family, because Quindlen makes their ordinary lives so fascinating, their mundane interactions engaging and important. . . . Never read a book that made you cry? Be prepared for a deluge of tears."--USA Today

"Anna Quindlen's writing is like knitting; prose that wraps the reader in the warmth and familiarity of domestic life. . . . Then, as in her novels Black and Blue and One True Thing, Quindlen starts to pull at the world she has knitted, and lets it unravel across the pages."--The Seattle Times

"Packs an emotional punch . . . Quindlen succeeds at conveying the transience of everyday worries and the never-ending boundaries of a mother's love."--The Washington Post

"A wise, closely observed, achingly eloquent book."--The Huffington Post

"If you pick up Every Last One to read a few pages after dinner, you'll want to read another chapter, and another and another, until you get to bed late."--Associated Press

"Quindlen conjures family life from a palette of finely observed details."--Los Angeles Times

"[Quindlen's] emotional sophistication, and her journalistic eye for authentic dialogue and detail, bring the ring of truth to every page of this heartbreakingly timely novel."--NPR
