Editorial Reviews

Review

"Patchett convincingly portrays a bar manager's conflicted feelings for a teenage waitress in this tale of fatherhood and unfulfilled dreams."

-- " Publishers Weekly " --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"As resonant as a blues song . . . Expect miracles when you read Ann Patchett's fiction."
--The New York Times Book Review

"A MOVING EMBLEM OF FATHERHOOD'S RARELY EXPLORED PASSION."
--Los Angeles Times

"Patchett writes with remarkable conviction and attention to telling detail. . . . [She] is excellent at portraying the steady love and interest that holds the family members together, even though that love and interest isn't always successful in preserving the members from danger."
--JANE SMILEY
   Mirabella

"The Patron Saint of Liars is a remarkable novel; Taft is even better. Comparisons are tempting: to the unabashed romanticism of Laurie Colwin, the eccentric characters of Anne Tyler, the enchantments of Alice Hoffman. But Ann Patchett is unique: a generous, fearless, and startlingly wise young writer."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Absorbing . . . Strikingly original."
--Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
