Reviews

"So precise, so distilled, so beautiful that one doesn't want to miss any pleasure it might yield." --Le Anne Schreiber, The New York Times Book Review "Here's a first novel that sounds as if the author has been treasuring it up all her life...You can feel in the book a gathering voluptuous release of confidence, a delighted surprise at the unexpected capacities of language, a close, careful fondness for people that we thought only saints felt." --Anatole Broyard, The New York Times "I found myself reading slowly, than more slowly--this is not a novel to be hurried through, for every sentence is a delight." --Doris Lessing
