Praise

The Transit of Venus is maybe a perfect novel.” —Rumaan Alam, The New York Times Book Review (podcast)

“I cannot think of a more elegant writer. To me she personifies the word exquisite. . . . It’s the inner landscapes, the kind of minute, almost inevitable gestures and impulses that comprise human interaction that she’s just so brilliant at registering, and in this sense I think she’s truly the heir to Henry James. She’s just such a treat.” —Emily Eakin, The New York Times Book Review (podcast)
