Praise

"A deeply humane, modest, and beautifully constructed narration."
The New York Times Book Review

"Consistently engaging, sly, witty, understated (though still provocative) and written with simple elegance. . . . Like a powerful novel, The Amateur works in mysterious, subterranean ways." —The New York Observer

"Delightful . . . Lesser’s writing is clear, strong, shapely and a pleasure to read."
The Washington Post Book World
