Reviews

"A delightful new voice in American fiction, a voice that instantly recalls the wry, knowing prose of Lorrie Moore crossed with the screwball talents of the cartoonist Roz Chast." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times"Any woman who's ever found herself looking at her life and wondering how on earth she wound up there will relate to the characters in this funny, honest novel." --Jodi Picoult, author of Nineteen Minutes "Fox gives us an all-too-real glance into what most married people have at one time or another wondered about (if not acted upon): the thrill-ride of illicit love. Emily's first-person narrative may be laugh-out-loud funny, but it's also an honest, compassionate look at the heartbreak of misplaced intimacy." --Amy Woods Butler, St. Louis Post-Dispatch"Read Still Life with Husband for its funny, winning voice and an ending that could be debated by book clubs for months to come." --Ann Oldenburg, USA Today
