Praise

"Irresistible…As [Hamilton] evokes the powerful grip of love, both young and mature, cruel and ecstatic, she reaffirms life."–People"Subtle, moving, and utterly convincing."–Newsweek"Lovely in its appreciation of the resilience of family–Hamilton’s plainsong to American endurance still lifts the heart."–Entertainment Weekly"With intelligence and empathy–and drawing on rich veins of irony–Hamilton tells the story of Walter’s search to define his talents–at once surprising and redemptive."–The New York Times Book Review"Hamilton’s third novel and arguably her best, for it matches its range of emotion with a technical precision both masterful and haunting–Hamilton has eased time and memory throughout her novel with the expert abandon of a dancer in full pirouette."–Boston Globe"[Hamilton] can make real life riveting–There can be no better recommendation for a novelist."–Denver Post
