Caroline Leavitt is a master. Her control over her characters is something to watch; she creates people who are beautifully human, poetically flawed. This is a book to stay up all night reading, and then let your mind linger over a week later.

You close the book with a happy sigh, you have experienced something in the pages and come out the better for it.
