Praise for Ann Beattie

“She punctures her characters’ pretensions and jadedness with an economy and effortless dialogue that writers have been trying to emulate for three decades, though few, if any, have matched her seamless combination of biting wit and mordant humor, precise irony and consummate cool.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Beattie’s wit [is] truly unsurpassed in our literature.”
The Washington Post

“[With] her absolute ear and her masterly deadpan humor, the results are dazzling. Beattie is a natural writer. Her prose never preens or tires or obstructs.”
The New Yorker

“Beattie’s style works brilliantly—as, seeming only to report the events of an evening, she reveals the essence of her tale.”
The Atlantic

“Beattie’s complexities make us more alert to the layered complexities of our own lives, and the lives of others.”
Los Angeles Times

“She is brilliant at furnishing the precise level of niggling complexity that is tragicomically real.”
—Joan Frank, The San Francisco Chronicle
