Reviews
NAMED A MOST ANTICIPATED BOOK OF THE YEAR FROM THE WASHINGTON POST AND THE STAR TRIBUNE

"Charming...there's plenty of intelligence and candor in the author's creative spin on the conundrum of commitment."
--Publishers Weekly

"Richly characterized, philosophical, and funny. I enjoyed all the husbands, even (especially?) the terrible ones. A time-bending gem about the way we live now."
--Gabrielle Zevin, New York Times bestselling author of Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow

"The Husbands is a wily and wonderful exploration of modern decision-making, kaleidoscopic and bright and very, very funny."
--Claire Lombardo, New York Times bestselling author of The Most Fun We Ever Had

"Brilliant, hilarious, surprising and wise. I devoured it."
--Naomi Alderman, New York Times bestselling author of The Power and The Future

"The Husbands is WONDERFUL: fresh, original, hugely entertaining and oddly comforting. . . . I laughed out loud countless times. . . . [This] was the most fun I've had reading in the longest time. It is an utter delight."
--Marian Keyes, bestselling author of Again, Rachel and Grown Ups

"Clever, fresh, inventive, The Husbands is wholly original."
--Louise O'Neill, author of
Asking For It

"The plot allows the author to explore current attitudes and approaches to dating and mating from a fresh perspective... A fun take on a big question."
--Kirkus
