Praise

“Hedges delivers an insightful portrayal of parenthood and the strains and temptations of marriage, even in a seemingly perfect relationship. He also makes some wonderful observations about family life.”
-Associated Press

“[A] quirky, amusing book.”
Washington Post

The Heights‘ witty and honest take on marital claustrophobia shows the virtue of taking your time.”
GQ Magazine

The Heights stays with you. As much a metaphor for being swept off your feet by lofty people or aspirations or location, The Heights delves into the marriage of a futurist woman working for a nonprofit and a history teacher at a Brooklyn Heights private school taking a sabbatical to finish his dissertation on the history of loss.”
New York Daily News

“Hedges has a knack for taking everyday life and making it fascinating…The Heights us a no-holds-barred expose of suburbia and the strains of marriage and childrearing, but Hedges deftly transforms this weighty subject matter into an addictive blend of melodrama carefully balanced with comedy…creating a novel that is devilishly delightful.”
-BookPage

“A must-read if you’ve ever longed for more excitement in your life.”
Parenting magazine
