Reviews

All writing is autobiographical, but almost never in the ways we presume. This is a profound book about the intrication of literature and life, about the modest, miraculous ways art helps us to live. Claire Messud, with her lapidary intelligence and dizzying sense of history, is among the most luminous writers at work today.--Garth Greenwell, author of Cleanness and What Belongs to You
Moving and evocative...These intimate, contemplative and probing essays reveal Messud's rich inner life and generosity of spirit.-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
Powerful and inspirational: Messud is as fine a critic as she is a novelist.-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"
