Product description


"This novel is like a hand-painted Russian Easter egg, a Chinese sleeve piece done in blind stitch; painstaking, breathtaking beauty in miniature. [Moore] creates a gorgeous, terrifying picture."

-- "Washington Post Book World"

"This is more than a girls' coming-of-age story...Ms. Moore was always able to make readers laugh out loud. This is the first of her works that can bring them to tears as well."

-- "New York Times Book Review"

"Touches and dazzles and entertains. An enchanting novel."

-- "New York Times"

"Exquisite...Exhilarting...Balanced adroitly on the fine line between laughter and tears."

-- "Chicago Tribune"

"The extraordinarily talented Lorrie Moore presents the lives of Sils and Berie and the atmosphere of the upstate town they live in with a subtle, moving, and often outright brilliance."

-- "Los Angeles Times "
