Reviewer: Donna Bowman, (Onion A.V. Club)

"Sullivan produces a page-turner about the personal implications of an unavoidably political education....COMMENCEMENT is much more than a novel about academia or young women. It's a thoughtful, engrossing study in lives transformed and relationships realigned, full of details and dilemmas that speak to a broad audience."

Reviewer: Janet Maslin, (New York Times)

"J. Courtney Sullivan's COMMENCEMENT is one of this year's most inviting summer novels....[She] introduces strong, warmly believable three-dimensional characters who have fun, have fights and fall into intense love affairs, sometimes with one another."

Reviewer: Maria Russo, (New York Times Book Review)

"[Sullivan] is brave to characterize the modern female condition as equally bewildering and empowering....[Her] gifts are substantial."
