Reviews

Intelligent, challenging and exciting. . . . The characters' emotions are so real, the author’s insights so moving,that readers will be happy to be swept away.
Kirkus Starred Review

Jennifer Egan is a refreshingly unclassifiable novelist.

Madison Smartt Bell
New York Times Book Review

Egan is an exceptionally intelligent writer whose joy at appropriating and subverting genres and cliches is evident on every dizzyingly inventive page.
The Washington Post
