Reviews

"My favorite of Lily King's books so far. Exuberant and affirming, it's funny and immensely clever, emotionally rare and strong. I feel bereft now I've finished."

-- "Tessa Hadley, author of Late in the Day"

"If you loved The Friend but wish it had had more sex and waitressing, get ready for Lily King's Writers and Lovers. Delicious."

-- "Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author"

[A] charmingly written coming of age story."

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

"Elegant, droll...The nimble, astute narration appeals. This meditation on the passing of youth is touching and ruefully funny."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"Gorgeous!"

-- "Elizabeth Strout, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

"While never minimizing the seriousness of Casey's personal problems, the book is also funny and romantic and hard to put down, full of well-observed details of restaurant culture and writer's workshops. It's hard to imagine a reader who wouldn't root for Casey."

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

"This deep dive of a novel will stay with me forever."

-- "Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

[Lily's] payoff-heavy fifth novel."

-- "Shelf Awareness"
