Editorial Reviews

Review

PRACTICALITIES: "A mind alive to the possibilities of human experience and of the word, and a writer with the courage to publish truly her experience as a woman." --Newsday

WARTIME NOTEBOOKS: "By turns ardent, raging, sensual and embittered. . . . A dreamlike, savage world, in which the great themes of love, war, and death found their most recklessly impassioned chronicler." --The Observer

THE LOVER: "An exquisite jewel of a novel, as multifaceted as a diamond, as seamless and polished as a pearl." --Boston Herald
