Roxana RobinsonPaper: $14.95
Robinson's writing is almost flawless. She is a sharp observer . . . [who] goes after emotions we want to understand – fragile love, nervous lust, coldness, and regret.
Dramatic, fast-paced, boasting both engaging characters and an optimistic resolution of its conflict, this well-written novel will make good summer reading.
[A] beguiling story rich with the lessons we all should have learned from Henry James and Edith Wharton.
Summer Light has the economy and precision of a beautifully constructed play; [it] is an admirable and moving novel, and I'm glad I read it.
