"[D]elightful....Lurie's deep understanding of the literature of childhood fantasy joins hands with her sharp appreciation of the self-deception of adult reality. Casting the crisp irony and humor of her academic novels in the dappled metaphorical light of an enchanted wood, Lurie has had the wit to recognize that middle age is just as dark and bizarre as any of the Grimms' fantastic tales."
Cathleen Schine, New York Review of Books, 11/17/2005Review:
"As in all previous novels, Alison Lurie's excellence resides in her reading of ordinary human paradoxes and ironies....Lurie seems confident that people will go on telling lies, for these are embedded in human interaction....And, however adept we are at telling lies, Alison Lurie will be around to satisfy our need for fictional truth."
