Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Lisa Genova has essentially created her own genre, the ‘Lisa Genova’ novel, in which complicated topics become accessible to readers through beautifully drawn characters and profound, human-scale stories. Love Anthony dares to ask enormous questions, the big questions that bedevil all of us. Better yet, Genova has the wisdom to know which ones can be answered and which cannot.” Laura Lippman, New York Times bestselling author
“Autism is like a Zen koan—a riddle without answers…with effects that are myriad, mysterious, and confounding. The same could be said about love. This book upended my perceptions of both conditions, leaving me feeling with my mind and thinking with my heart. Everyone should read this book!” Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author
Love Anthony broke my heart in the best way! I read it spellbound and breathless. If you don’t know Lisa Genova’s work already, meet your new favorite writer, storyteller, enchanter.” Heidi W. Durrow, New York Times bestselling author
“Genova’s deep and empathic insight once again has blown me away—particularly her intensely accurate portrayal of autism parenting. Her characters are complicated people, with unique, believable, and sometimes frustrating struggles. But perhaps Genova’s true mastery is in the way she never fails to give us very real people to love.” Susan Senator, author of Making Peace with Autism
“There’s a point in the narrative where one of the characters becomes so engrossed in reading a book that she loses track of time. Readers of Genova’s latest excellent offering might very well find the same happening to them.” Kirkus Reviews
