Praise for Oh!

Recipient of the 2018 Arts and Letters Award in Literature

“Oh! I loved Oh! It’s hilarious. Maybe it’s brilliant. In any case, it will be one of the best funny books of 1981, and it’s serious.” —Boston Globe

“At first, Oh! seems a satire, a sitcom stripped of its sentiment and foolishness. But it is far more. Mary Robison is trying to show us how the the incredibly complicated dance of family life works, how it balances love and hate, respect and contempt, humor and self–righteousness, wisdom and foolishness.” —The New Yorker

“The Wonder of the novel is its dialogue—rich, sharp, untiring in its energy and quite unlike anyone else’s. . . . They are a resilient bunch, these Clevelands, and by the end of the books we are no longer surprised that they are still together. Once drawn into the stream of their talk, we can no more escape than they can.” —Larry McMurtry, The Washington Star
