Reviews

"Artfully portrays a family transformed by the far-reaching consequences of a son's heroin addiction." --Vanity Fair

"Cost applies Roxana Robinson's trademark gifts as an intelligent, sensitive analyst of family life. . . . A warmly human and deeply satisfying book, marking a new level of ambition and achievement for this talented author." --Chicago Tribune

"Scarily good . . . with such fierce moments of anxiety and grief, this is, frankly, a challenging novel to read, but Robinson's insight makes it impossible to break away." --The Washington Post

"Pitch-perfect . . . Cost is unusual for being as plot-driven as it is character-driven, and the assured manner in which Robinson builds toward the inevitable train wreck is matched by her acuity in bringing us inside the characters' minds." --The New York Times Book Review

"Cost is unsparing but not bleak. It is both lyrical and unsentimental, richly honest and humane--summer reading of uncommon stature." --The Wall Street Journal

"Gripping . . . Robinson paints a chilling portrait of addiction." --People

"An emotionally incisive story about change--the permeable bonds between family members and an individual's fluctuating sense of self." --Time Out (New York)

"[A] piercing novel . . . Robinson has always been a sensitive and revelatory writer, but she attains new degrees of intensity here. . . . Her illuminations of the churning inner lives of her smart and deep-feeling characters depict good people facing brutal forces beyond the reach of reason and love." --Booklist
