"Christine Dwyer Hickey's The Lives of Women mines the chasm between adults and teenagers, and exposes the narcissism and cruelty that lie behind the respectable front of suburban life." * Sydney Morning Herald *
"Dwyer Hickey is excellent on the flat horizons and banal twitterings of the suburbs...[she] writes with quiet power about the devastation of lives circumscribed by habit, fear and ignorance." * The Independent *
"Dwyer Hickey has done a fantastic job of honing in on that dangerous, delicate time between adolescence and adulthood. The terrifying truth in her novel is that it can all go so wrong so quickly when teenage emotions are left to run unchecked. A well-written and engaging novel." * WeLiveThisBook *
"Christine Dwyer Hickey's writing is both flowing and elegant." * The Bookbag *
"The book's genre is hard to pin down. It is cast in two periods more than 30 years apart, and reads like a closely observed novel of manners - then and now. But since ...the sinister is never far from the surface of her prose, The Lives of Women reads at times like a suburban gothic and at others could be mistaken for a straight-up murder mystery." * Irish Times / Irish Times Book Club Pick *
