Product description

Review

Witty and disturbing ... the novel resonates with coming-of-age poignancy and wise-cracking self-deprecation... the bleakness is profound, but her dark humour pulls you through. (Guardian)

A masterly work ... alternating between the playful and the tragic, Moore is the kind of writer who shifts invisible gears to reveal chasms beneath. Like a younger and insouciant Anne Tyler, she replays commonplace observations from everyday life in new and subversive ways. (Independent)

This novel is a testament to Moore's capacity not only as a storyteller but as a writer willing to engage with the world as it is today ... always tender, never sentimental, often heartbreakingly funny. A Gate At The Stairs confirms Moore as one of the preeminent American writers working today. (Irish Times) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

A Gate at the Stairs by Lorrie Moore is one of the most acclaimed novels of the year from one of America's most brilliant writers.
