Editorial Reviews

Review

‘Garner is scrupulous, painstaking, and detailed, with sharp eyes and ears. She is everywhere at once, watching and listening, a recording angel at life’s secular apocalypses...her unillusioned eye makes her clarity compulsive.’ James Wood, New Yorker; ‘Garner can write about everything for every reader…Her tone throughout is one of considerable charm and approachability. Five minutes in Garner’s company, you feel, and you’d be telling her your deepest secrets.’―Neil Stewart, Civilian Global; ‘[Garner’s] writing expresses a hard-won grace. It brings you closer to the world, and shows you how to love it.’―The Monthly --This text refers to the paperback edition.
