I'm very gratified that many of my previous novels have been reissued in a new format and form. In particular I'm excited about the re-issue of "Baby" since I feel that this not only was a best-seller, but was probably the best novel I ever wrote. The plot was highly original and it was one of those books that essentially wrote itself. Also, it's what I'd call a "complete novel" in that every character introduced and every sub plot is tied together perfectly at the end. This was a case where I was just in the zone.As soon as I had completed it, I knew I had hit a home run... And the reviews came in to confirm it!From the Back Cover:
Los Angeles Times Book Review - "A haunting novel of obsession, cultism, and greed...A tribute to Lieberman's storytelling ability...Rollerskating on a high wire."
ALA Booklist - "Astounding...an unconventional novel by a spellbinding storyteller...convincing style...intriguing story."
Kirkus Review - "Densely imagined and full textured...talented storyteller...Strongly involving and oddly moving."
Pittsburgh Press - "Pure inspiration."
The Atlanta Journal and The Atlanta Constitution - "Best of new releases...imaginative tale of human folly...exciting climax."
The Fresno Bee - This gripping novel weaves intrigue, mystery and intense drama...
spellbinding... masterful plot... full of surprises... well-paced. Lieberman's characters are forceful, well drawn out, dynamic in their believability.
Book Week - Lieberman keeps the reader guessing... well defined characters...
and entertaining novel.
The Hartford Courant (Hartford, CT) - Lucid, sensitive story... compelling narrative that builds inexorably to an absorbing climax... vividly delineated
characters... satisfying richness...
