Reviews

"A romantic, shocking . . . page-turner [that] actually says something new and interesting about women, families and love." -The New York Times Book Review"Absorbing. . . . Compelling and artfully drawn. . . . The novel is beautifully paced and unfolds seamlessly." -The Washington Post"A smart and finally affecting portrayal of a woman working her way out of her own grandiose self-image into something like real love." -New York"The emotions Waldman instills in her protagonist are visceral and convincing. . . . [Emilia's] always sharp, wickedly funny, opinionated and cheerfully bitter, lending depth and energy to this wise, entertaining book." -San Francisco Chronicle
