Reviews

"Gorgeous. . . . delicious, delightful, and deeply satisfying." --The Times-Picayune


"Her second novel is even finer than her first. . . . Glass offers unobtrusive yet resounding insights into the paradoxes of families, the necessary solace of friendship and the volatility of intimate relationships gay and straight. Her social commentary is at once mischievous and trenchant." --Chicago Tribune


"Enormously appealing and inventive . . . sure to solidify Julia Glass' reputation as one of America's most talented younger novelists." --The Atlanta Journal-Constitution


"A generous, tentacled, ensemble novel. . . . [Glass] is deft at the quick portraiture and character shorthand that this novelistic approach requires." --Los Angeles Times Book Review


"Glass pins down these lives with verve, precision, and depth.... A wise book, with breadth as well as depth." --The Oregonian
