Praise for Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse

Top Ten Book of 2015 in the Wall Street Journal, and Winner of the Midwest Book Awards and the Langum Prize for Historical Fiction

"Her novels are a reliably inviting world, full of friendly faces and intimate dramas. However you first make your way to Harvester, you'll want to return."--The Wall Street Journal

"Well-told and appealing . . . Nell emerges as a likable, resilient protagonist in Sullivan's inspiring novel, which should find its way onto the reading lists of book clubs."--Publishers Weekly

"Reviving characters from previous novels, Sullivan (Gardenias, 2005) presents a fresh glimpse into small-town life, and gently but piercingly acknowledges the essential values of kindness and compassion that foster courage in the face of hardship."--Booklist

"Sullivan's canvas may be small, but her message is universal: books--including this one--have the power to amuse, console and transform lives."--Shelf Awareness

"Sullivan describes small-town life through the eyes of an intelligent, generous narrator who fights off gossip, pettiness and tragedy with compassion, perseverance and forgiveness. Who wouldn't want to spend a late-summer afternoon or two in the company of such a person?"--Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Many of the characters in Sullivan's novels love education and reading. But Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse is her most explicit homage to the place books hold in our lives."--Saint Paul Pioneer Press

"More than 40 years of history bookend a lifelong love affair with reading for the resilient heroine of Sullivan's latest novel set in Harvester, Minnesota. Nell's life experiences read like her book collection--some are part of a series, some stand alone, and all are ultimately comforting and timeless."--Kirkus

"Reading Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse, I was reminded of the extraordinary novels of the late, great William Maxwell. Here too are large passions, sweeping love affairs, and deep friendships. A beautiful and profound novel."--Margot Livesey, author of The Flight of Gemma Hardy

"Good Night, Mr. Wodehouse is told with Faith Sullivan's trademark warmth, wit and wisdom. Readers, prepare to be captivated."--Lorna Landvik, author of Angry Houswives Eating Bon Bons

"For all those fans of The Cape Ann, Gardenias, and The Empress of One here is your priceless ticket back to Harvester, Minnesota. An extraordinary book."--Julie Schumacher, author of Dear Committee Members
