Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Powerful…Ms. Hadley has a talent for the canny detail…There are platoons of novelists producing work about middle-class marriages in disarray, most of it very dull. Ms. Hadley is one of the gifted exceptions, and the calm acuity with which she depicts these fractured relationships is haunting.” Wall Street Journal
“[Hadley] is a writer who has always allowed her fiction space to breathe beyond its narrative borders…Shows how language, deployed with precision or daring, can make thrillingly new the textures and undercurrents of everyday life.” Sunday Times (London)
