Reviews

The New York Times Book Review A small masterpiece. Simmons has found the perfect, delicate, elegiac voice.
The Wall Street Journal A simple and spellbinding novel...grimly enchanting....A powerful, 20th-century tragedy of an American family.
Booklist A riveting story of youthful innocence consumed by betrayal. Remarkably enthralling and agonizingly revealing....Simmons...maneuvers unfalteringly between each of his characters....The book's opening line leads like a wick into a powder keg of unexpected consequences. Simply spellbinding.
The Wall Street Journal The mastery of the telling...keeps one continually off balance until the maelstrom of a conclusion.
Kirkus Reviews A little saga of adolescence...a perfectly-cut gem of its kind.
