Editorial Reviews

Review

“Anne Enright writes so well that she just might ruin you for anyone else…Stripped raw of any sentimentality, the result is a critique, a confession, a love letter―and another brilliant novel from Anne Enright.”
- Ron Charles, Washington Post

“Gorgeously written fiction…Enright’s unflinching portrait…is scrupulously developed and painfully moving.”
- Wendy Smith, Boston Globe

“There is something that seems effortless about Ms. Enright’s writing―an illusion, of course, but one brilliantly sustained.”
- Sam Sacks, Wall Street Journal

“Captivating.”
- Sara Resnick, The New Yorker

“Intoxicating.”
- Mary Gordon, New York Times

“Another triumph for Enright: a confluence of lyrical prose, immediacy, warmth, and emotional insight.”
- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Enright’s indelible images of the primal love between mother and daughter that ebbs, flows, and ultimately abides will stick with readers.”
- Booklist (starred review) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
