Ken and I don’t feel that every single word of a review needs to appear here on our page. We’ve cut to the heart of the matter and condensed the Kirkus review to this:
. . . . . . . .
And the Publisher’s Weekly one to this:
“…Whitaker’s…debut…is full of… style….”
The readers themselves have been very complimentary, for which we are most grateful. You can see their comments scattered here and there: on amazon, barnes and noble, goodreads, etc. Thank you, dear readers!
“A lively, cosmopolitan novel…Whitaker writes with style and aplomb, a sense of fun, and a sense of humanity.”
Elin Hilderbrand, author of Silver Girl.
“Succeeds brilliantly as a comedy of manners because of Whitaker’s pitch-perfect depictions of human foibles and graceful renderings of awkward siutuations. But the book works on a much deeper level, too: as a meditation on marriage, solitude, personal freedom and parenting that is as thought-provoking as it is entertaining.”
Meg Mitchell Moore, author of The Arrivals, and So Far Away.
“Smart, clever, moving, and surprising at every turn. Funny and wise, this is a tale of modern love about parents who love their children more than they don’t love each other.”
Laura Zigman, author of Animal Husbandry and Piece of Work.
