Reviews

"Authentic and intelligent...One of those novels that makes you feel sad when it's over."
"Make room on that shelf--next to Dorothy Allison's Bastard Out of Carolina, Mona Simpson's Anywhere But Here, and the rest--for The Center of Everything...[an] impeccable, moving first novel."
"Laura Moriarty writes with unflinching honesty and clear-eyed compassion...Her characters are as real as mirrors and sentiment never crosses the line to sentimentality. Laura Moriarty can do this surpassingly well. I carried this book everywhere I went."
"Are the sins of the parents visited upon the children, or vice versa? Laura Moriarty's raw, honest novel about an ordinary family whose life changes in one extraordinary moment resonates like an emotional tuning fork. You'll be asking yourself what you would do in this situation, long after you've finished reading."
