Review

"A sophisticated confection . . . For this delightful novel about the governess from hell, maybe only the word 'wicked' will do.""--The New York Times Book Review"
"A brilliant oxymoron"--"a serious farce so subtle that its command of the reader must called insidius . . . Bright, candid, and modestly humorous, Stella Benson lures us into complicity . . . Cusk's ability to keep us interested in innumerable human collisions is uncanny. We may finally learn Stella's secrets, but she remains as fascinatingly indeciperable as anyone we know.""--The New Yorker"
"Enchanting . . . A funny, modern "Jane Eyre" combined with an Anne Tyler-esque tale about escaping from the pressures of an unhappy urban life.""--Newsday"
"An oddly ingratiating social comedy . . . Smart, literate, offbeat, confiding . . . A pleasure."
"--The Boston Globe"
"Hilarious . . . Stella is strange because strangeness is part of the human condition; she's just a little more aware of it than most people.""--Village Voice Literary Supplement"
"Smart, charming, and often outright hilarious.""--Entertainment Weekly"
