"The story of Alice Brill’s coming of age at 51 . . . is that rare paradox, a fast-paced novel so well-written you want to linger over it." --The New York Times Book Review

"Another triumph for Wolitzer . . ." --Library Journal

"Though paced like a detective story, it is, in the end, a novel of metamorphosis. When Wolitzer dwells deeply in a scene, it is marvelous." --Chicago Tribune
