Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Smashing…Fascinating…Extremely subtle and nuanced…[It has the] power to beguile and enthrall.” New York Times Review of Books
“Smiley's range as a writer is always surprising…Every character here is fresh and fully dimensional, and anybody who lived through the '80s will recognize them—and maybe themselves.” Publishers Weekly
“Smiley has never been more seductive… expertly crafted and subtly suspenseful.” Booklist
“Only a writer of consummate craftsmanship and scope could write a novel about a series of real estate deals in a small town and make it so fully satisfying as to be thrilling. Jane Smiley has done it…[Her] range is broad, her technique masterful…[Good Faith is] a cautionary prequel just right for our times. And great fun, to boot.” Los Angeles Times
“There seems to be nothing Smiley can’t write about fabulously well; her insights startle, dazzle.” San Francisco Chronicle
“An irresistible novel of bad manners, a meditation on love and money that Jane Austen might have enjoyed, if she could have handled the sex.” Time
“Since we live with the legacy of the self-serving 1980s, Smiley's novel seems as timely as if it were set in the present. Penetrating, readable fiction by one of our best writers and social critics.” Amazon.com, editorial review
