""Lost "is gripping, riveting, electrifying, arresting and
sometimes frightening. Highly emotional and understatedly
intelligent, with several narratives that come together seamlessly
and unpredictably. Susan is a great lead character: warm,
complicated and totally believable. I hate to say it because it'll
sound so commonplace, but it's got to be said: I literally couldn't
put this book down."
-- Stephen Dixon, author of "Meyer"
""Lost" is a remarkably complex and intricately told story. The
nuances and surprising angles of observation Lichtenstein brings to
bear upon her characters and on the situations in which they find
themselves-her elegant and sly artfulness-are constantly surprising
and always illuminating. Alice Lichtenstein has written a novel
that is a constant amazement!"
--Robb Forman Dew, author of "Dale Loves Sophie to Death"
"Here is a virtuoso novel which manages to be both a nail-biting
page turner and a lyrical meditation on fate and longing. "Lost"
interweaves the stories of three inimitable characters who feel so
real they're likely to enter the reader's dreams. This is the type
of book you'll want to press into the hands of everyone you know -
for the story is intensely suspenseful and achingly beautiful, a
masterful exploration of the intricate, heart-rending ways we all
seek to survive."
--Rebecca Godfrey, author of "Under the Bridge"
"Lost is a beautiful book, told by a lyrical new voice. A warm
welcome to Alice Lichtenstein."
--Roxana Robinson, author of "Cost"
