"Easily one of [1988’s] most important debuts…A buoyant, smart, irrepressibly sexy book…that has the heft and resonance of a classic modernist novel, the sprawl and surprise of an intimate memoir." — Village Voice Literary Supplement"The swimming-pool library beautifully welds the standard conventions of fiction to a tale of modern transgressions. It tells of impurities with shimmering elegance, of complexities with a camp-fired wit and of truths with a fiction’s solid grace." — The New York Times Book Review

"Absorbing and delightful…some of the brightest, smartest writing to come along in a long time." — Houston Post
