A New York Times Book Review Notable Book of the Year "Elegant, honest, and emotionally brutal. . . . A perfectly shaped treasure that stands among the finest work of Mr. Bergman's career."--New York Times "Because every line is saturated with juice, with the sense of life, you feel, in addition to life as it is, life as it ought to be."--New York Times Book Review "In words, as in cinematic images, Bergman shapes settings and characters that immediately come alive and subtly express the depths of human emotions and experience."--Houston Chronicle "A Nobel for Ingmar? He deserves one many times over."--Kirkus Reviews Praise for Ingmar Bergman's Private Confessions "As psychologically intricate and harshly personal as his movies."--San Francisco Chronicle "Confessions is a searing drama of adultery, secrets, lies, and lifelong guilt."--Chicago Tribune "A vibrant and moving addition to what begins to look more and more like a great work in progress."--Kirkus Reviews "A dark gem of a novel, set in resonant prose as elegant as a classical sonata."--Publishers Weekly. Praise for Ingmar Bergman's The Best Intentions "Lush and devastating at once."--New York Times Book Review "The closest thing imaginable to a Bergman film without pictures or sound."--New York Times "A saga of great warmth and emotional rage . . . full of deep anguish, great passion, and stunning honesty."--Toledo Blade
