Reviews

National Book Awardr winner Glass (Three Junes) tells here of sisters Clem and Louisa, whose differing interpretations of each others' lives, loves, and losses are masterfully conveyed through the narration, voiced alternately by the author and actress Mary Stuart Masterson. These two accomplished readers make the sisters' varying experiences and memories sound like a conversation at the kitchen table. Recommended for public and academic libraries. [Audio clips available through library.booksontape.com and www.randomhouse.com/audio; the review of the Pantheon hc advised that "public libraries.buy on demand," LJ 8/08.-Ed.]-Beth Traylor, Univ. of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libs. Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

I See You Everywhere has a bourgeois, chick lit sensibility, minus the proud vacuousness of the Bushnell set and plus a somewhat unexpected, sad vanishing act by one of the protagonists. It should prove an engaging and intelligent, though not literary, page-turner for sisters who like to revel in sisterhood. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

The best novels entrance us by showing what is missed in life as much as by what's discovered; this is one. * Daily Telegraph *
Rich, intricate and alive with emotion ... Glass has used the edges and color blocks of her own life to build an honest portrait of sister-love and sister-hate * New York Times Book Review *
Louisa and Clem, the sisters at the very centre of this wonderfully vivid, truthful novel, are (as Louisa puts it) "not exactly soul mates. Historically we're kind of like England and France"... [a] quarter century of their lives unfolds, switching between their two voices, kept beautifully distinct by Glass. * The Times *
The beauty of this story lies in its rich detail and the descriptions of the emotions and events that have shaped the sisters' complex relationship. A riveting and intricate read. * Candis *
An engaging and intelligent page-turner * Publishers Weekly *
