Reviews

Praise for Illumination Night

"Daringly mixing comedy with tragedy...[Hoffman] has created a narrative that somehow makes myth out of the sticky complexities of contemporary marriage...Her characters are branded onto one's memory."--The New York Times Book Review

"Vivid, convincing characters...uncommon insight."--People

"[A] bright constellation of characters...draws the reader into the dusky, dreamy world of Alice Hoffman."--St. Petersburg Times

"Alice Hoffman takes seemingly ordinary lives and lets us see and feel extraordinary things."--Amy Tan

"Not-so-delicate questions are raised in a wonderfully delicate way in Alice Hoffman's latest novel...Explorations of the tangled strands of parenthood and friendship, self-protection and generosity, dream and disillusionment are made achingly vivid by Hoffman's ability to ground them in the finely etched details of her characters' daily lives."--Newsday

"There is a cumulative power to Illumination Night that is wondrous...It's enough to make one search out other books by Alice Hoffman."--The Chicago Tribune

"Reading an authentic prose stylist of high order is an uncommon privilege."--The Boston Globe
