Reviews

"Inspired, lyrical . . . Mr. Greer's considerable gifts as a storyteller ascend to the heights of masters like Marilynne Robinson and William Trevor. . . . [He] seamlessly choreographs an intricate narrative that speaks authentically to the longings and desires of his characters." --S. Kirk Walsh, The New York Times

"A beautiful, lyrical novel . . . a book full of urgent questions." --O, The Oprah Magazine, Recommended Summer Reading

"Andrew Greer writes with an aching clarity of the heart. This is an exquisite story with shattering realizations about love." --Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club and Saving Fish from Drowning

"This is a haunting book of breathtaking beauty and restraint." --Dave Eggers, author of A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and What Is the What

"Greer doles out revelations with grace and precision. . . . [His] prose is unerringly poetic . . . . What can be seen plainly on every page of this slim, lovely novel is Greer's prodigious talent." --Connie Ogle, The Miami Herald

"Bewitching . . . A book whose linguistic prowess and raw storytelling power is almost disruptive to the reader. It's too good to put down and yet each passage is also too good to leave behind....Every twenty pages or so, the plot implodes and the characters reveal themselves." --Devorah Vankin, Los Angeles Times

"The chronicle of one marriage, closely and elegantly examined . . . The new novel is built on several narrative surprises that cannot (or should not) be revealed. . . . The Story of a Marriage is more than worth the reader's attention. It's thoughtful, complex, and exquisitely written." --Carolyn See, The Washington Post
