Praise for Tova Reich:

For Master of the Return

“A very engaging novel. [Tova Reich] has found here a subject worthy of her talent . . . We turn the pages, we lave one narration and discover the next one, we are taken by the rhythm of the language and by the imagination of the storyteller . . . Tova Reich has given us a gift smiling: How can we not thank her for it.”
—Elie Wiesel, The New Leader

“A novel in the form of an ambush—a wildy funny story that becomes mysteriously touching and ponderable before the end. . . I urge you not to miss it.”
—Benjamin DeMott, The Atlantic Monthly

“Ms. Reich’s book lives. Her characters love, marry, give birth, get stoned, commit bigamy. In the end, [her] comic vision gives the last word to life . . . A rapturous celebration.”
—Hugh Nissenson, The New York Times Book Review

For Mara

“Undeniably funny . . . Reich has the writer’s sure touch, eye, ear, sensibility; her book sings.”
—Anne Bernays, The Washington Post

“Reich’s voice is a striking one: she has a gift for outrageous, hard-edged comedy that Evelyn Waugh might have appreciated.”
—James N. Baker, Newsweek

“It is evident from the very first page that an extraordinary energy is at work.”
—Harper’s Magazine
