Editorial Reviews

National Booklist
“DeFilippi creates a surprisingly fresh novel, a meditation on communication and on silence…full of texture. The Long Island setting is evoked vividly but with admirable restraint. A sleeper that could find its natural audience among fiction devotees.”
Kirkus Review
“Recalling the happy summertime of youth in the ‘50s, summons Coke bottles, friendly drunks, fussy moms, baseball games on the radio and harmless pranks.”
Cleveland Plain Dealer
“A terrific tale… a superbly crafted novel.”
Publishers Weekly
“The story is excellently paced and imaginatively told, in a series of flashbacks, imaginary scenarios and straightforward narrative sections, all enlivened with vernacular dialogue. DeFilippi’s novel is as much about emotions as it is about actions, and it delivers a jolt of a surprise ending that entirely fits the plot’s milieu.”
