Reviews

"Finely choreographed and lucidly told, Halpern infuses this tale of derailments and second chances with free-ranging empathy, lithe humor, and penetrating insights into the human psyche. [Halpern is] a discerning and sensitive novelist." -- Donna Seaman, Booklist (starred review)

"Sometimes the best stories in the library aren't found on its shelves; they're walking through its doors and congregating by the reference desk. Sue Halpern knows this and mines the setting for comic and tragicomic gold." -- Marilyn Johnson, author of This Book Is Overdue! and The Deadbeat

"This novel presents a full cast of intriguing, complex characters and a heart-warming message about how our losses are often what allow us to connect with each other." -- Julia Alvarez, New York Times bestselling author of In the Time of the Butterflies

"Summer Hours at The Robbers Library is whip-smart, funny and moving all at once. A rare combination." -- Maggie Gyllenhaal, Academy Award-nominated actress
