Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Trenchant, funny tales…of the chronically out-of-sync relations between American men and women.” People
“Fine, funny, and very moving pictures of contemporary life… [from] a writer of enormous talent.” New York Times
“Sharp, flicking, on-target…The work of a sorcerer’s apprentice. Moore casts a cruel, mischievous spell.” Vanity Fair
“A funny, cohesive, and moving collection of stories.” New York Times Book Review
“Moore is so good at trapping each moment in perfect, precise detail, so masterful at cynicism and wryness that her moments of poignancy and sweetness catch us completely off guard.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Lorrie Moore’s razor-sharp collection of nine introspective, bitingly ironic short stories is complemented by Jane Oppenheimer’s contemplative, wryly humorous narration…Oppenheimer deftly endows the protagonists’ voices with more than a touch of dry humor. Her insightful narration…employs varied tones to differentiate multiple characters, adding nuance and making the interactions sound realistic. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
