Pulitzer Prize WINNER 2000
" A sensitive rendering of one of the century’s great love stories."–Mirabella
" I am truly in love with this book. Schiff’s sentences are magnificent, deceptively complex, full of insight and fact and distance and wry humor, so that every page is a kind of mini feast."–Anita Shreve
" An absorbing story, illumined by Schiff’s flair for the succinct insight."
–The New York Times Book Review
" Véra is an astonishingly fine book–a tale told with wit and elegance, a tale that succeeds in encompassing both the intimacy of a marriage and the sweep of history. I found it a great pleasure to read. And I’m in awe of Stacy Schiff’s talent."–Jonathan Harr
