Editorial Reviews

Review

"This deep dive of a novel will stay with me forever."

-- "Elin Hilderbrand, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

[Lily's] payoff-heavy fifth novel."

-- "Shelf Awareness"

"While never minimizing the seriousness of Casey's personal problems, the book is also funny and romantic and hard to put down, full of well-observed details of restaurant culture and writer's workshops. It's hard to imagine a reader who wouldn't root for Casey."

-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

"Gorgeous!"

-- "Elizabeth Strout, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

"Elegant, droll...The nimble, astute narration appeals. This meditation on the passing of youth is touching and ruefully funny."

-- "Publishers Weekly"

"If you loved The Friend but wish it had had more sex and waitressing, get ready for Lily King's Writers and Lovers. Delicious."

-- "Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author"

[A] charmingly written coming of age story."

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

"My favorite of Lily King's books so far. Exuberant and affirming, it's funny and immensely clever, emotionally rare and strong. I feel bereft now I've finished."

-- "Tessa Hadley, author of Late in the Day" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of March 2020: At 31, Casey is still holding onto her dream of being a novelist. Most of her artist friends have given up their artist dreams for more practical, and lucrative, endeavors; but Casey writes and makes ends meet by waitressing and walking her landlord’s dog. Writers & Lovers is Lily King’s follow up to her 2014 breakthrough novel Euphoria, which was loosely based on the experiences of Margaret Mead, and one might expect King to tread a similar path in this new book. But this is a different novel altogether. That said, it’s a very enjoyable read, a breath of fresh air, with characters that leap off the page. Writers & Lovers is about the uncertainty of dating, and of pursuing the creative life, in a world that values success and stability. Life does not wait for Casey to fulfill her dream, if that dream even comes. So she works and she dates, and she tries to figure it out as she goes. Love and art require daily, often imperceptible, leaps of faith—and this book captures that perfectly. —Chris Schluep, the Amazon Book Review --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
