Reviews
"What a marvelous book: one part Transit of Venus, one part Stone Diaries, one part incomparable. Actually, that's not true: she write like a female Ian McEwan."--Stacy Schiff, Pulitzer-Prize winning author of A Great Improvisation: Franklin, France, and the Birth of America
"Wickedly smart . . . A gorgeously wrought and ultimately wrenching work of art."
--Leah Hager Cohen, New York Times Book Review (cover review)
"Ambitious and impressive . . . Reminiscent of a host of innovative writers from Virginia Woolf to Muriel Spark to Pat Barker . . . A witty and assured testament to the women's movement and women writers, obscure and renowned."--Washington Post
"A subtle and profound book, as thought-provoking as it is moving."
--Ann Packer, author of The Dive From Clausen's Pier
