Praise for The Heirs:

“Susan Rieger is thrillingly erudite and compulsively readable, a satisfying combination hard to find in any section of the bookstore. The Heirs is an absorbing page-turner, full of sex and secrets, and I loved getting to know the entire Falkes clan. 
—Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author of Modern Lovers 

“What a sure-footed and unfoolable writer Susan Rieger is–and what a great book The Heirs is.  Unstoppably entertaining and astute, it describes its characters–the charismatic fauna of old, upper class New York–with a strange, merciless sympathy.  Wonderful stuff.”
—Joseph O’Neill, author of Netherland and The Dog

“[An] assured novel of family, money, and secrets, reminiscent in theme and tone of Edith Wharton…just in time for poolside reading, this elegant novel wears its intelligence lightly.”
Kirkus, starrred review

“Rieger wrestles perceptively with difficult questions and… shines incrementally increasing light on the Falkes’ extended web of familial and emotional ties, sucking the reader into the tangle of emotions and conflicting interests… a tense, introspective account of looking for truth, and instead finding peace.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

Selected Praise for The Divorce Papers, by Susan Rieger:

“Ingenious setup and voyeuristic pleasures…Rieger excavates the humor and humanity from a most bitter uncoupling.”
—Emily Giffin, New York Times Book Review

“Fresh and lively… Smart and wonderfully entertaining… The power and canniness of this bittersweet work of epistolary fiction pulls you along… [T]his portrait of a divorce makes for serious, yet charming, entertainment… A dramatic intertwining of the law and human feelings.”
—Alan Cheuse, NPR

“In her clever modern twist on the epistolary form, Rieger excavates the humor and humanity from a most bitter uncoupling.”
—Editor’s Choice, New York Times Book Review

“Brims with brio and wit.” 
—Entertainment Weekly

“This comedy of manners… unfolds through e-mails, legal briefs, handwritten notes, and interoffice memos… the texts offer a provocative glimpse of how intimately our documents reveal us.” 
—New Yorker

“Rieger writes with such facility and humor in so many voices… [A]n excellent yarn about the nature of love, insecurity and commitment.”
Minneapolis Star Tribune

“A witty first novel… The engaging tale…provid[es] all the voyeuristic pleasure of snooping through someone else’s inbox.”

“A fantastic book…excellent.” 

“Whip-smart… The characters are hilarious and brilliant.”
