Press Reviews

  • <i>LA Times </i>
    'Elinor Lipman's social satire is Larry David without the high-pitched whine...It's hard (even annoying) to have to put her novels... down. Delightful... snappy and smart'
  • <i>Washington Post</i>
    'Delightful... just because something is 'light' doesn't mean it's not masterful...exquisite... Lipman mesmerized me. She hypnotized me. I admit it freely: I fell victim to the Elinor Lipman Effect'
  • <i>Entertainment Weekly</i>
    'Sparkling...original, funny, achingly human characters'
  • <i>National Public Radio</i>
    'Elinor Lipman's tenth book finds her at the top of her singular game... Lipman's comic touch remains light but never slight. She writes dialogue that sizzles with playful, effortless wit'
