Product Details


“An amazing first novel . . . wise, flippant, deep, witty—characteristics which are seldom found together. It is also a good story.”—Madeleine L’Engle
“With vibrancy and a steady barrage of linguistic bio, . . . Weber provides a blend of artistry and insight far beyond what we usually see in a first novel.” —San Francisco Chronicle
“Wonderfully complex characters, witty prose, ironic situations, and tragic consequences . . . It’s Weber’s control of the language that holds this cleverly touching book together.”–Charlotte Observer
“Engaging . . . Ms. Weber’s nuanced renderings of childhood traumas, of families in crisis and of Harriet’s grandmother are impressive.” —New York Times Book Review

“I much enjoyed this delightfully witty novel.”—Iris Murdoch
A New York Times Notable Book of the Year
A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 1995
