Product Details


"Jane Hamilton has removed all doubts that she belongs among the major writers of our time." —San Francisco Chronicle"Stunning prose and unforgettable characters . . . an enthralling tale of guilt, betrayal, and the terrifying ways our lives can spin out of control." —Entertainment Weekly"It takes a writer of rare power and discipline to carry off an achievement like A Map of the World. Hamilton proves here that she is one of the best." —Newsweek"Ms. Hamilton has done a nimble job of showing us how precarious the illusion of safety and security really is." —The New York Times"Hamilton’s chillingly accurate prose keeps her fine novel buoyant. She is superb in her observation of the natural world and in her examination of psychological nuance." —The Washington Post
