Product description


San Francisco Chronicle Ann Beattie is an expert at probing the essential mysteries of the human character.

Los Angeles Times Ann Beattie's prose is gentle, spare, and incisive....She has loosed a monster in The Doctor's House.

Newsday Authors as varied as Russell Banks and Sue Miller have taken the measure of dysfunctional families in recent years. But not since Albee and Pinter has a domestic scene been subjected to such ferocious, pitiless examination. Beattie makes us read on nonetheless, avid to hear the voices cry out their bitter truths.

Lisa Shea Elle Psychologically charged...The adroit prose in this novel is signature Beattie. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
