Praise from The Philadelphia Inquirer: "Clear-eyed and unsentimental, Juska has created a welcome, refreshing novel that upends stereotypes and eschews cliches."
From Curtis Sittenfeld, bestselling author of Prep and American Wife: "Elise Juska is so good at describing people, places, and moments that you not only picture them, you feel them."
From Marisa Silver, author of The God of War: "Juska's passion for language, and for the ways in which it tries, and sometimes fails, to represent who we are, give this lovely book a resonance that crosses not only family lines, but geographical borders, too."
