For seven years, Napolitano was the associate editor of the literary magazine One Story, and she received an MFA from New York University.

"Napolitano writes with beauty and power, skillfully bringing her characters within arms's reach until your heart is taken and this family becomes your own. This novel is a must-read for any book group."--Hannah Tinti, author of The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley

"Napolitano has created a fascinating family in crisis. . . . Successfully skirting melodrama, [she] gives us a family drama that says even the most contentious can find a bit of happiness."--Hartford Courant

"As if we are friends she brought home for the holidays, Ann Napolitano plops us onto the living room sofa of a big family with big problems and gives us an intimate view of what goes on behind closed doors. Within Arm's Reach is a deft, vivacious novel whose author compels us to stay seated until the very last word."--Helen Ellis, author of Kiss Me in the Coral Lounge

"A fresh and exceptionally strong family portrait."--Denver Post
