"A breathtaking tale of tragedy and redemption... A triumph."
“A fresh, beguiling novel ... as true to the anguish of [its] questions as it is ablaze with love and vitality.”
— Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“Masterful … heartbreaking… [an] incredibly moving story of life, love, and mental illness … It’s this generation’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”
