Praise

“A lovely, lively, intelligent, funny book… So good on aging and on the fraught, warm friendships between women.”Tessa Hadley, author of The Past

“I found reading The Weekend both hypnotic and profoundly unsettling. The prose is sharply vivid and precise, the characters and location exceptionally real, and I challenge anyone to write a better description of an elderly dog and its owner. Masterful.” — Rosamund Lupton, author of Sisters and Three Hours

“The Weekend
positively hums with life even as these three women are approaching the end of theirs. The book is exquisitely wrenching and poignant when dealing with female friendship and old age, yet it still manages to be funny and very real.”–Claire Fuller, author of Our Endless Numbered Days

“Friendship, ambition, love, sexual politics and death: it’s all here in one sharp, funny, heartbreaking and gorgeously-written package. I loved it.” – Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Girl on the Train

“An insightful, poignant, and fiercely honest novel about female friendship and female aging.”—Sigrid Nunez, National Book Award-winning author of The Friend
 
The Weekend is more Big Chill. . . with a dash of Big Little Lies. . . A novel about decluttering and real estate, about the geometry of friendship, about sexual politics, and about how we change.” –The Guardian

“The Weekend
is an unflinchingly observed celebration of the profundity and mundanity of friendship, treated with elegance, wit, and tenderness.”—Kiran Millwood Hargrave, author of The Mercies
 
“Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow” –The Australian
 
“Wood’s technique in this novel is masterly.” –The Sydney Morning Herald
 
“One of the best novels of the year.” –The Saturday Paper (Australia)
