Review

Ann Leary's The Good House creates a one-of-a-kind character in Hildy Good...By the end you'll be flipping pages, trying desperately to piece together what happened as much as the narrator is doing herself. -- Jodi Picoult on The Good House So alive, I swear the pages of this wickedly funny and moving novel are breathing. -- Caroline Leavitt on The Good House A witty, touching, unputdownable novel. * Good Housekeeping * As always, Leary makes dysfunction, pathology and even tragedy completely compelling. * The Huffington Post * With a deft, sure touch, Ann Leary moves easily and confidently between comedy and pathos, painting a rich portrait of a wealthy, eccentric Connecticut family whose conflicts and loyalties are far more complex than they first appear. As the story unfolds, it becomes a profound meditation on the burden of expectations, familial ties that bind, and the explosive nature of buried secrets. -- Christina Baker Kline, author of Orphan Train I loved this... Ann Leary's compelling tale is satisfyingly layered with unreliable witnesses and betrayals large and small. -- Helen Simonson, author of Major Pettigrew's Last Stand The Children is reminiscent of Anne Tyler at her best... Leary's unique voice and perspective make this the novel you won't be able to put down this summer. -- Ann Hood, author of The Obituary Writer A fast-paced, darkly funny novel. * Popsugar * A read-in-one-sitting romp, Leary's wry and searing satire of affluence and elitism comically yet steadily builds to a sobering and malevolent finale. * Booklist * No one does the unreliable female narrator like Ann Leary...A cautionary fairy tale about what happens when you think you're irrelevantly above it all. * Lit Hub * As in The Good House, the details in Leary's characters are bright. * The New York Times Book Review * Great fun. * PEOPLE *
