Reviews

"A big story: a story about families and identity and race and the American Dream. . . . Jen's most ambitious and emotionally ample work yet." --The New York Times

"Vibrant, vital. . . . Wise and compassionate, The Love Wife unflinchingly probes the ties that bind-and separate-people, races and nations." --People

"A feast of gab, of proclamation and rebuttal, some of the quirkiest, funniest, most intelligent fictional talk in years." --Newsday

"A lush, funny, yet deeply moving novel of family and identity, a wondrous swoosh of a story." --The Philadelphia Inquirer
