"TOLSTOY LIED is a brilliant novel, one of the wisest books I've read about love." --Carol Gilligan, author of IN A DIFFERENT VOICE and THE BIRTH OF PLEASURE
"TOLSTOY LIED is a love story with heft, weight, and dazzle. Rachel Kadish has written an infectiously enjoyable novel." --Tova Mirvis, author of THE LADIES AUXILIARY and THE OUTSIDE WORLD

Tracy is a thoughtful heroine, and her life and conflicts seem very realistic despite the occasional over-the-top character (Aunt Rona and Yolanda, I'm looking at you). Academic politics really can be this nasty, and New York City really is chock-full of interesting characters. The reason I'm giving this 4 stars is that I did not find Tracy's relationship with her mentally unstable student completely convincing, or well-explained, and that is a problem in terms of plot development. It is, however, more than balanced out by the other plot lines in the story. Kadish makes great use of every character that is introduced, including the departmental secretary, and there are so many clever lines and funny moments that I am ordering my own copy of the book to re-read and lend to others.
Kadish has lots to say and gives the reader lots to think about.
