Editorial Reviews

Review

“A daring and perceptive work of memory, catharsis and literary grace.” —Los Angeles Times“Unflinching. . . . Gordon shows a piercing understanding of the way childhood slights and family squabbles reverberate through the generations.” —The New Yorker“Revelatory. . . . Wrenching and enlivening, resonant with candid emotion.” —The Boston Globe“Gordon is in a class by herself. . . . A brilliant writer in all senses of that word; a gifted craftsperson, original scholar, unflinching observer of self and others. . . . Her strongest work to date.” —The Seattle Times


From the Trade Paperback edition.
