Product description

Review

"My favorite discovery of the year." --Anne Enright

"Luminous. . . It reminds us that literature not only can, but must, address the most important subjects, because it does so in ways no other form can." --Claire Messud, Newsweek

"Garner is perhaps most easily introduced to new American readers as the Joan Didion of Australia--a person who writes with a diamond drill, depicting human relationships with such brutal clarity they seem to be rendered for the first time." --April Smith, Los Angeles Times

"A Molotov cocktail of a book. . . Her voice is full of unexpected humor." --Emily Carter, Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"A book so sensitive, sad, funny, and alive that it surely deserves an honored place on many shelves." --Diana Athill, The Daily Telegraph (UK)

"Two women who have known each other for fifteen years, spending three weeks together with the weight of one crushing disease. How do we calculate what's important in our lives? Highly recommended." --Bette-Lee Fox, Library Journal (starred review)

"Only great fiction demands us to reset our moral compass and look at our value coordinates all over again. The Spare Room achieves this." --Neel Mukherjee, The Times (UK)

Review

"Observed with the blunt tenderness, bravery and acute detail that make Garner's writing so interesting and memorable." (The Age)

"Swift, beautiful, and relentless, The Spare Room is a brutal novel in the best sense." (Alice Sebold)

"The Spare Room is a perfect novel, imbued with all Garner's usual clear-eyed grace but with some other magnificent dimension that hides between the lines of her simple conversational voice." (Peter Carey)
