Product Details

Praise

“Wolitzer is as precise and rigorous an observer of social status as Tom Wolfe; she is as invisibe and pitiless and clear-eyed a chronicler of female-male tandems as Philip Roth or John Updike.” —Chicago Tribune

“Very entertaining. The tartly funny Wolitzer is a miniaturist who can nail a contemporary type, scene, or artifact with deadeye accuracy.” –The New York Times

“Wolitzer perfectly captures her women’s resolve in the face of a dizzying array of conflicting loyalties. To whom does a woman owe her primary allegiance? Her children? Her mother? Her friends, spouse, community? God forbid, herself?” –The Washington Post 

“What determines a woman’s worth?… Wolitzer’s middle-aged moms are flawed: selfish, neurotic, and occasionally petty. But they– and their conflicts– feels vividly, satisfyingly real.” —Entertainment Weekly 

“Wolitzer’s great ear for dialogues and for insinuating humor into seriousness make this noel a though-provoking pleasure to read.” –The Seattle Times
