"Homes…has the ability to scare you half to death….[She is] devastating…a very dangerous writer."
—Washington Post Book World
"A commanding narrative…by turns witty and unnerving, and at times almost unbearable in its emotional intensity."
—Wall Street Journal
"Intriguing…captures a world spinning out of control….Homes is at her best evoking the pathos and obsession at the center of relationships between therapist and patient, mother and child, husband and wife. She is also wickedly funny. [This is] a psychologically gripping story."
—San Francisco Chronicle
