Praise

“[Messud is] a novelist of unnerving talent.” —The New York Times Book Review“A fine first novel, and the ‘first’ is deceptive, for its author has the daring and assurance to take on Iris Murdoch-like questions about goodness and truth.” —The New Yorker“In its rich detail and its humor, this is a wry, uplifting book.” —The Independent on Sunday (London)“Beautiful. . . . [Messud] proceeds, sentence by sentence, image by image, character by character, to create a fully realized, multi-layered world. . . . [She] has the imagination, the craft and the understanding of human nature to write about anything she chooses.” —The Chicago Tribune
