Product Details

Praise

“Briskly witty . . . delightful . . . an engaging confection . . . clever, dry, and often highly amusing.”—Claire Messud, Harper’s Magazine
 
“Johnson returns with undimmed joie de vivre to the delicious Francophile vein she mined so successfully in her National Book Award finalist Le Divorce . . . Everything one looks forward to in Johnson’s books is delivered in abundance here: nimble plotting, witty narration, edifying juxtaposition of French and American cultures . . . Johnson’s social and moral insight are condensed into pithy one-liners that begin each chapter . . . She also excels at evoking people’s misconstruals of others’ behavior and various delicate inner states . . . Doing what she does best, Johnson shows us why she’s been compared to writers like Henry James, Jane Austen, and Voltaire.”—Kirkus (starred review)
 
“Delightfully absurd . . . incisive . . . Johnson gently but deftly skewers everyone as they scheme for financial gain and languorously search for meaning and happiness.”—Booklist
 
“Johnson makes a welcome return to her wheelhouse in this propulsive domestic dramedy of manners . . . [Her] usual razor-sharp prose and astute observations are on full display . . . provocative . . . poignant . . . a treat.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
