Reviews

"Miraculous . . . Deft and resonant, [these stories] encapsulate moments of hope and humiliation in a kind of shorthand of different lives lived. Hadley never fails to surprise." --The New York Times Book Review

"Tessa Hadley's gift as a writer is so considerable that her characters' revelations and predicaments linger in the mind long after her narrative has darted off in other directions." --Alice Traux, The New York Times Book Review

"A warm novel that follows the contours of four generations of a family and, in the end, shows us ourselves." --Associated Press on Everything Will Be All Right

"Marvelously intricate . . . Hadley's intelligence puts her in the company of Carol Shields and Doris Lessing." --The Boston Globe on Accidents in the Home
