Reviews

Praise for Allegra Goodman:

"The brushstrokes seemingly casual yet sure, always the exact--and unlikely--equivalent of a shadow or reflected gleam."--Anna Shapiro, New York Newsday

"An astonishing display of virtuosity."--Los Angeles Times on Total Immersion

"Exceptionally well written: funny, wise, keenly observed....One of the most maddening and recognizable families to come along in years...an enchanting book."--Michiko Kakutani in The New York Times on The Family Markowitz
