  • Reviewer: Heller McAlpin, (National Public Radio)

    "Despite her ambitious agenda, Shattuck keeps PERFECT LIFE lilting with sharp characterizations, a lively narrative line and wry observations....[S]he...manages to make even her Type A strivers sympathetic, even as she gently skewers them. Her sensibility, more mocking than dark, is closer to Jane Austen than Cheever."
  • Reviewer: Judy Budz, (Boston Globe)

    "To make sense of their lives in a world without logic or certainty, Shattuck's characters turn to parental models and over-rationalized metaphors....By the end of the novel, Shattuck allows her characters to develop a more conventional way to manage the contradictions of their world. But until then, we watch as they struggle to handle unpredictable events that threaten to destroy them."
