Product Details


"Undeniably vivid, capturing the dreamy intensity of . . . desire with poetic shorthand." –The New York Times Book Review

“A veritable orgy of carnal activity. . . . In elastic, often startlingly resonant prose, Sigerson mines both the ugliness and the ecstasy of sexual obsession.” –Seattle Weekly

"Sigerson displays an intuitive understanding of the contemporary complexities of love and desire, and the power–through instinct, not caprice–with which one sex holds the whip in this transatlantic, emotionally sadomasochistic tale of triangulated love and fatherhood." –Vanity Fair

“Who can resist Sigerson’s masterful manipulations?” –Los Angeles Times

"Sigerson is inquiring what fidelity means in a world of shifting loyalties and domestic arrangements. . . . [Written] with the illuminated grace of a Renaissance portrait." –Elle

"Davitt Sigerson’s sensual saga of sex and parenting . . . shows how sexual desire and parental responsibility are often strange bedfellows, and pounds home the knockout punch Nick finds in fatherhood." –Boston Herald

"A fast, literate read. . . . Faithful is hip and contemporary." –Santa Cruz Sentinel

“If you have any desire to sleep, eat, or go to work for the next few days, don’t read Faithful: it’s compulsive. A tender, mischievous, and infinitely sexy piece of work.”
– Fernanda Eberstadt, author of The Furies

"[Faithful] mixes the two strongest, usually competing emotional forces: family and sex. Davitt Sigerson is, for instance, particularly observant about children, their deliciously scented newness, capacity for sudden squalls and primary emotional power over their parents. . . . There’s not a dull page in it." –The Palm Beach Post

"A compelling novel about love in its many transformations. Sigerson recognizes that the rules are gone and love cannot be kept within boundaries. Ignoring the old conventions and facing enormous difficulties, his characters’ emotions emerge triumphant and true. I love this book." –Susan Cheever, author of Home Before Dark

“Mr. Sigerson’s book . . . is raising more than eyebrows. . . . An impressive debut.” –The New York Observer

"People often remark on how amazing it is that men do the greatest fictional portraits of women. Here, equally amazing, is a man’s portrait of a broken-hearted guy’s love for, and understanding of, a little girl. Take a trip to your bookstore." –Litchfield Enquirer

"Faithful is a mystery story—fast, tense, surprising, sexy, unnerving. But it is even more a brilliant love story in which Sigerson captures the passion of a man for one woman, and the devotion of a father for one daughter." –Susanna Moore, author of In the Cut and One Last Look.
