About the Author

Reviews

This is not a novel with a happy ending, and that's a good thing. Moore doesn't tie her story up in a pretty package and hand it to the reader with care, but artfully acknowledges in the end that some heavy loads cannot easily be left behind.
A suspenseful, restorative novel from one of our fine young voices.--Colum McCann
Moore's characters are lovingly drawn...A truly original voice.
Few novelists of recent memory have put our bleak isolation into words as clearly as Liz Moore does in her new novel.
Tender, thoughtful.
Moore's writing is clear, persuasive, and totally engaging, bringing her characters to life in all their sweet, quirky glory.
This is the real deal, Liz Moore is the real deal--she's written a novel that will stick with you long after you've finished it.--Russell Banks
Heft achieves real poignancy...The warmth, the humanity and the hope in this novel make it compelling and pleasurable.
Heft is a work that radiantly combines compassion and a clear-eyed vision. This is a novel of rare originality and sophistication.--Mary Gordon
