Reviews

"Wonderfully illuminating...one of the most curious and moving love affairs in contemporary fiction." -- Washington Post

"A novel that's twisty and heartrending in equal measure...the kind of work that can inspire endless analysis and discussion, because the question it probes is really at the heart of the human experience: who are we, really?" -- AV Club

"Oates excels at creating spooky, off-kilter atmospherics...The maze of memory is an ideal setting for Oates' trademark mixture of melodrama and pathos." -- Kirkus Reviews

"A profound and moving meditation on how memory shapes our personalities and, by extension, the emotions that we provoke in others." -- Publishers Weekly
