Strangers in Budapest (2017)
"Strangers in Budapest is both lyrical and propulsive, capacious and rich in detail. The characters will stay with you forever. A courageous, compassionate and deeply wise novel."
The Testament of Harold's Wife (2018)
"At the center of this moving, transcendent novel is the unforgettable Louisa. Perceptive, wry, full of righteous fury and enlarged by deep compassion...I promise you will miss her when you turn the last page. The story itself--flawlessly written and genuine to the core--takes an unflinching look at how we survive shattering tragedy and pointless cruelty and continue to love the world. Its startling life-affirming conclusion will haunt me for a long time."
