Reviews

"A beautifully written novel...filled with complicated (sometimes unlikeable) characters and spectacular imagery that makes any novelist's mouth water." -- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"The vividly drawn characters in this novel, each driven by their own poignant desires, spark in their interactions. Simpson writes in luscious, sensual prose. A completely absorbing read." -- Regina McBride, author of The Nature of Water and Air and The Land of Women

"Simpson is a master at creating realistic characters who are flawed...yet sympathetic.... Readers who enjoy seeing inside the hearts and minds of others will relish sharing the lives of Simpson's creations." -- Kirkus

"Well-crafted.... This touching debut captures the intricacies and the unexpected of personal relationships." -- Library Journal

"Simpson's lush prose will envelop readers in the sights, sounds, and textures of the dance hall.... Fans of Jennifer Haigh and those welcoming a many-voiced, richly drawn experience will enjoy the poignant and emotional Ballroom." -- Booklist
