Praise

Los Angeles Times Book Review
"Part of the artistry of this novel lies in its limpid, understated realism, the tangible details....The integrity of THE READER lies with the narrator's refusal to assign blame according to initial, obvious interpretation; indeed, as the novel develops, its theme becomes the always-shifting landscape of guilt and shame." - Kai Maristed 08/31/1997
