Reviews

Richly imagined.
[A] whip-smart, funny novel.... A yarn about marriage, fatherhood, and idealism, its every page idiosyncratically entertaining, amusing, and insightful. Millet proves she might have Jonathan Franzen beat at expertly mixing the political and domestic.
Millet is that rare writer of ideas who can turn a ruminative passage into something deeply personal. She can also be wickedly funny, most often at the expense of the unexamined life.--Tricia Springstubb
Millet... skillfully interweaves the personal and the political, making Hal's journey both specific and universal.--Christine DeZelar-Tiedman
