Reviews

"A lean, seemingly effortless tour de force...a perfect little novel."
--The New Yorker

"Spare, luminous...Salzman makes this cloistered society not only believable, but also compelling."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"A singularly rich and abundant work.... [Salzman has an] ability to convey spiritual states with a lambent clarity."
--The New York Times Book Review

"A satisfying and evocative questioning of faith and art."
--The Oregonian

"Mark Salzman is...a poet, capturing in the pages of Lying Awake, his shining novel about devotion and doubt, a mysticism that reaches back in time to an older tradition, yet dwells easily in the present."
--Los Angeles Times

"A gentle story.... Graceful, lucid and enjoyable."
--Newsday

"Elegant.... Salzman's depiction of Sister John's conflict, convent life and this society of devoted women is a marvelous accomplishment."
--The Seattle Times

"Lying Awake showcases an almost ethereal talent, one that can handle complex ideas with a touch lighter than air."
--New York Post
