Editorial Reviews

Review

”Tender and emotionally intelligent . . . . An audacious feat of narrative bravado.”
—Maria Semple, author of Where’d You Go Bernadette

”The Boys is utterly charming -- one of the most delightful books I have read in ages. As we bike through Italy's little villages with introvert Ethan Fawcett, stopping to drink a caffè shakerato as church bells ring in a mournful E flat, what we see around us is the wide and beautiful horizon of the human heart. I absolutely loved this little miracle of a book.
—Meg Waite Clayton, New York Times bestselling author of The Postmistress of Paris

”This is a treat-yourself read, the tale of an endearing human on a hilariously misguided quest for love and connection, in the delight-filled tradition of Anne Tyler. But Hafner bakes a surprise into the center of her confection— a glorious, mind-blowing twist that propels the story to unexpected heights and depths. With exquisite compassion and humor, this novel leaves its readers deeply nourished, heart, mind, and soul.”
—Debra Jo Immergut, author of You Again and The Captives

”Unexpectedly funny, touching, disarming—The Boys got under my skin from the very first page. Hafner is a wry and wise explorer of the secrets buried deep in our most intimate relationships. This novel will stay with me for a long time.”
—Laura Zigman, author of Separation Anxiety
