“Her truest talent is for imposing a shape on the little, everyday disturbances that distract most of her writing peers; she has an almost 19th-century ability to create a sense of linkage, of one existence impinging on the next.”
“Superb . . . A delicate analysis of how an ethics scandal filters through the sensibility of brilliant and brilliantly realized characters. It's a tricky operation that Goodman performs with the precision of a scientist and the flair of an artist at the top of her game. Grade: A.”
“If you're hankering for a feast of love, let yourself fall under the spell of Allegra Goodman's delicious tale. You won't leave hungry.”
