Product Details


“A thoughtful, stimulating collection.”

“Eloquent and profound . . . a generally top-notch collection from Schlink.”
Publishers Weekly
“In each affecting story in this hot, blurry haze of summer, the valley between truth and deception is neither straight nor wide.” 

Praise for The Weekend
“Schlink deftly manages his characters’ interlocking stories yet refuses to give readers an easy answer to the central dilemma . . . [A] beautifully crafted and stimulating read.”
—Library Journal
“Schlink avoids the easy route of condemnation and salvation . . . The book’s real strength is the finely wrought dynamic among the characters, whose relationships and histories are fraught with a powerful sense of tension and possibly untoward potential.”
—Publishers Weekly
Praise for The Reader
“Arresting, philosophically elegant, morally complex . . . Schlink tells this story with marvelous directness and simplicity, his writing stripped bare of any of the standard gimmicks of dramatization.”
—The New York Times
“[A] beautiful, disturbing, and finally morally devastating novel. From the first page, The Reader ensnares both heart and mind.”
—Los Angeles Times
Praise for Homecoming
“Sensitive and disturbing . . . The reader’s mind opens to the story like a plant unfurling its leaves to the sun.”
—The New York Times Book Review
