Reviews
"Touches and dazzles and entertains. An enchanting novel." --The New York Times

"Exquisite...exhilarting.... Balanced adriotly on the fine line between laughter and tears." --Chicago Tribune

"The extraordinarily talented Lorrie Moore presents the lives of Sils and Berie and the atmosphere of the upstate town they live in with a subtle, moving, and often outright brilliance." --Los Angeles Times

"This novel is like a hand-painted Russian Easter egg, a Chinese sleeve piece done in blind stitch; painstaking, breathtaking beauty in miniature. [Moore] creates a gorgeous, terrifying picture." --Washington Post Book World

"This is more than a girls' coming-of-age story. . . . Ms. Moore was always able to make readers laugh out loud. This is the first of her works that can bring them to tears as well." --The New York Times Book Review
