Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"[Pamela Painter] is a writer who seems to revel in setting herself new challenges, in trying to get inside a host of different characters who move through vastly different worlds. Even within a single story, she can slide effortlessly from one character’s point of view to another’s. . . . This is a virtuoso performance, graceful and brave and full of feeling."—Alida Becker, The New York Times
