"Exquisite. . . . It's not hyperbole to call this novel a masterwork--if anything that word is simply just too little for it." --San Francisco Chronicle
"Remarkable. . . . An epic study of trauma and friendship written with such intelligence and depth of perception that it will be one of the benchmarks against which all other novels that broach those subjects (and they are legion) will be measured. . . .
