"A hauntingly beautiful novel about a father and daughter. . . . The story grapples with absentee fathers, legendary matriarchs, mental illness, theodicy, adolescent love, and the persistence of hope in the face of suffering, and somehow, Thorpe weaves all these threads together into an enthralling narrative that has me desperate to keep turning the page." --Robin Wasserman, Miami Herald

"A deeply-detailed, beautiful, often hilarious novel. . . . Utterly original." --The Huffington Post

"Beautiful. . . . A family vacation narrative with far more depth and nuance than a typical beach read but a perfectly welcome addition to a beach tote all the same." --The Washington Post

"Blends the cultural history of The Tiger's Wife with the madcap energy of Dave Eggers." --BookPage

"Thorpe is a major talent, and reading her work will bring to mind other writers ... like Donna Tartt or Ann Patchett." --The Seattle Review of Books

"Vera and Lucas and their tour companions will live on in the reader's imagination, all of them longing for something that seems out of reach. . . . Definitely an author to watch." --The Washington Times

"Refreshing and impressive." --Brooklyn magazine

"Thorpe manages to tackle dark issues--estranged families, mental illness, and failed relationships--with a unique sense of humor and big-hearted empathy." --Electric Literature

"This book weaves an emotional web that will draw you in completely." --Bustle

"Tremendous. . . . Showcase[s] Thorpe's fabulous versatility, insight, and humor. . . . An absolute winner." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
