Product description

Review

"'[A] beautiful novel, of a quality rarely seen.' Annie Proulx 'His best book so far... written in rhythms that are sweeping and supremely confident' Colm Toibin, Daily Telegraph 'The Divine Husband confirms Goldman as one of America's most significant living novelists... He has produced a work of ambition, seriousness, passion and seething life.' Claire Messud 'Goldman is a proven authority whose word, without doubt or hesitation, the reader wholeheartedly believes to be true' Alberto Manguel, Independent"
