Praise

Praise for Illumination Night

“Daringly mixing comedy with tragedy…[Hoffman] has created a narrative that somehow makes myth out of the sticky complexities of contemporary marriage…Her characters are branded onto one’s memory.”—The New York Times Book Review

“Vivid, convincing characters…uncommon insight.”—People

“[A] bright constellation of characters…draws the reader into the dusky, dreamy world of Alice Hoffman.”—St. Petersburg Times

“Alice Hoffman takes seemingly ordinary lives and lets us see and feel extraordinary things.”—Amy Tan

“Not-so-delicate questions are raised in a wonderfully delicate way in Alice Hoffman’s latest novel…Explorations of the tangled strands of parenthood and friendship, self-protection and generosity, dream and disillusionment are made achingly vivid by Hoffman’s ability to ground them in the finely etched details of her characters’ daily lives.”—Newsday

“There is a cumulative power to Illumination Night that is wondrous…It’s enough to make one search out other books by Alice Hoffman.”—The Chicago Tribune

“Reading an authentic prose stylist of high order is an uncommon privilege.”—The Boston Globe
