Overview

Praise for Ann Hood

“Hood is larger than life, living, loving, and grieving on an operatic scale.”—New York Times Book Review

“[Hood’s] generosity of spirit, courage, humor, gumption, and grace are a powerful reminder that language and story have the capacity to heal, to instruct, and to change our lives.”—Dani Shapiro

“Hood never for a paragraph or a page loses control over the story that suffuses her, the sound of the words, the impact of images.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer
