Reviews

"Markovits's writing makes the ordinary unforgettable." -- New York Times
"Markovits's second title featuring the Essinger family will find an audience with readers looking for a holiday story that's light on the Christmas merrymaking and more focused on the complex dynamics at work in relationships among adult siblings, their spouses and children, and their aging parents." -- Library Journal
"In tender, compassionate prose and a deftly compressed time-scheme, Markovits glints through desire, ennui, misunderstanding, and love, illuminating one family's life so that it glows collectively like a human panorama." -- Jonathan Lethem on A Weekend in New York
