Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A beautiful, oftentimes hilarious, razor-precise portrait of a family, a city, and an examination of the eternal and universal urge to embrace something, anything, greater than ourselves.”  Richard Price, New York Times bestselling author 
“Profoundly satisfying…Heller injects that difficult-to-pinpoint something-or-other that elevates soap opera to art…The Believers pulses with…something deep and lasting and larger than mere story.”  Lionel Shriver, New York Times bestselling author
“A moving, deeply intelligent look at intellectual loyalties-to ideology, religion, family-and the humans attached to them. This is a wonderful novel.”   Joseph O’Neill, New York Times bestselling author
“Tough, wise and funnyA sustaining, intelligent novel about how the big questions affect and change all our small lives.”  Anne Enright, New York Times bestselling author
“Heller brilliantly balances the lives of her characters, each brimming with contemptuous emotions and personal defeats, with the drama of a family unraveling at its center.”    Booklist
