“Vivid, convincing characters…uncommon insight.”People
“[A] bright constellation of characters…draws the reader into the dusky, dreamy world of Alice Hoffman.”St. Petersburg Times
“Alice Hoffman takes seemingly ordinary lives and lets us see and feel extraordinary things.”Amy Tan
“Not-so-delicate questions are raised in a wonderfully delicate way in Alice Hoffman’s latest novel… Explorations of the tangled strands of parenthood and friendship, self-protection and generosity, dream and disillusionment are made achingly vivid by Hoffman’s ability to ground them in the finely etched details of her characters’ daily lives.”Newsday
“There is a cumulative power to Illumination Night that is wondrous…It’s enough to make one search out other books by Alice Hoffman.”The Chicago Tribune
“Reading an authentic prose stylist of high order is an uncommon privilege.”The Boston Globe
“Alice Hoffman hits bull’s eyes on the incomprehensions between the young and the old, on the magic and pain of ordinary life. She is erotic and romantic…funny…clever and humane.”The Times (London)

they appear. Read more
I am giving this book 5 stars because I LOVE Alice Hoffman! This book is not, in my opinion, her best, although it is still very good. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Shafer
Early Hoffman. The book read quickly, easy reading. Difficult to like some of the main characters. The giant was worth the read, but his character comes into the story rather late.Published 9 months ago by sandra a osborn
