Praise

AN OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB SELECTION

“A formally beautiful, disturbing and finally morally devastating novel.” —Los Angeles Times

“Moving, suggestive and ultimately hopeful…. [The Reader] leaps national boundaries and speaks straight to the heart.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Arresting, philosophically elegant, morally complex…. Mr. Schlink tells his story with marvelous directness and simplicity.”—The New York Times

“Haunting…. What Schlink does best, what makes this novel most memorable, are the small moments of highly charged eroticism.” —Francine Prose, Elle
