Reviews

"This is a masterly portrait that can be read as a critique of family life, the treatment of children and the psychic consequences of different forms of upbringing." -- Rachel Cusk, The New Yorker

"This sexy, poignant, moving and brief book is a must read." -- Helena Frith Powell, The Guardian

"A perfect beach book." -- Sloane Crosley, NPR

"Its sparkling sea and secluding woods, its animal quickness, its academically efficient plot, its heroes and heroines given the perfection of Racine personae by the young author's innocent belief in glamour." -- John Updike, The New Yorker
