Praise

“Few novelists write about America as Mona Simpson does, with her acute understanding of the tension between external forces—economy, technology, society—and individual dreams, between nostalgia and the future, between yearning and deception. Commitment is a majestic novel about an American family and an American century, its vision and scope bringing to mind the work of Tolstoy, Stendahl, and Balzac.”
—Yiyun Li, author of The Book of Goose 

“A sweeping family epic that took me from one American coast to another, through a difficult but unforgettable time period, and through the growing pains of three remarkable siblings. I was immersed in their world and in Simpson’s masterful vision for  them. Simpson is so attuned to the family heart and oh dear Walter, Lina, and Donnie, have you forever moved mine.”
—Weike Wang, author of Joan Is Okay
