Reviews

Praise for Elizabeth Berg

"The day you open this book you will miss all your appointments, because . . . you will read it straight through. . . . Berg's writing is to literature what Chopin's Γ©tudes are to music-measured, delicate, and impossible to walk away from until their completion."
-Entertainment Weekly, about Range of Motion

"Lyrical from start to finish . . . Shaped by Berg's artistic talents, these stories of ordinary people in ordinary situations are anything but ordinary."
--Fort Worth Star-Telegram, about Ordinary Life

"Truth rings forth clearly from every page. Berg captures the way women think-and especially the way they talk to other women-as well as any writer I can think of."
-The Charlottesville Observer, about Talk Before Sleep

"Berg's lovely novels examine how some families grasp blindly at the ties that hold them together and some pluck them apart. Mending is no exception."
-Entertainment Weekly, about The Art of Mending

"Elizabeth Berg is one of those rare souls who can play with truths as if swinging across the void from one trapeze to another."
-Joan Gould, about Talk Before Sleep
