Product Details


The Sisters Sweet will charm you into another world. Weiss has conjured a lost America with wit, sorrow, and beauty—a book like a favorite old movie.”—Andrew Sean Greer, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Less

“At once intimate and epic, The Sisters Sweet is an ambitious, intricately constructed, and immensely satisfying story about a family of performers—both onstage and off. This is a deeply immersive novel about the lives—and aspirations—of women. I loved it.”—Karen Thompson Walker, author of The Dreamers

The Sisters Sweet is both cinematic and humane, an expansive and gorgeously written tale of a family that’s at once spectacularly offbeat and fundamentally human.”—Claire Lombardo, author of The Most Fun We Ever Had

“Imaginative . . . Weiss explores the intriguing theme of a woman understood only in relation to others. . . . [T]here are plenty of rich details, and each scene is well drawn. Weiss is clearly talented.—Publishers Weekly
“[A]stute and descriptive narration . . . Readers who enjoy bittersweet, coming-of-age stories like Anna Quindlen’s Miller’s Valley or The Distance Home by Paula Saunders will root for Harriet.”Booklist
“Interesting characters and rich period setting . . . a promising debut.”Kirkus
