"I really loved all the characters in this book. They're so complex and interesting, and in every story, you'll find them going through these pivotal moments in their lives."--Reese Witherspoon (Reese's Book Club x Hello Sunshine Book Pick) "Sittenfeld makes writing lively and diverting fiction look easy, though each deceptively simple and breezy story is masterfully paced and crafted. . . . Witty and buoyant, Sittenfeld delivers her characters to her audience with bemused perspicacity and above all affection. . . . Sittenfeld proves adept at quickly establishing characters in whom the reader feels inclined to invest immediately."--Chicago Tribune "Perfectly paced, witty and laced with unexpected twists: Every story here sticks its landing. . . . Whatever [Sittenfeld] writes, we'll read it."--People "Razor-sharp, often hilarious . . . [Sittenfeld] is a sharp observer of human nature and human relationships. . . . A witty, breezy, zeitgeist-y collection." --USA TODAY "Sittenfeld's new story collection is brutally, beautifully human."--Entertainment Weekly "Magnificent . . . brilliant . . . Sittenfeld is an astute observer."--Houston Chronicle "Sittenfeld spins magic. . . . Reading these consistently engrossing stories is a pleasure."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Sittenfeld proves once again why she's one of the finest observers of human nature writing today with a collection of potent pieces as funny as they are literary."--Glamour Praise for Curtis Sittenfeld "Novelists get called master storytellers all the time, but Sittenfeld really is one."--The Washington Post "Sittenfeld is . . . popular but intellectual, accessible but mysterious and, above all--a perspective chameleon with an uncanny ability to enter the minds of callow prep school outcasts and devotedly compromising first ladies alike."--NPR's All Things Considered "[Sittenfeld] is a master of dramatic irony, creating fully realized social worlds before laying waste to her heroines' understanding of them. . . . Her prose [is] a rich delight."--The Boston Globe "Three cheers for Curtis Sittenfeld and her astute, sharp and ebullient anthropological interest in the human condition."--The New York Times
