Review:

'A beautiful, unstinting contemplation of mortality...turn back to the start and wallow in very word.' --The Guardian

'We all know that truth can be stranger than fiction: it is one of the challenges of fiction to persuade us that lives really might be lived and experienced in other ways. The vividness of Dillard's initial portrayal of the Maytrees' intimacy makes the shiftings of their hearts all the more startling.' --The Spectator

'A shimmering meditation on the ebb and flow of love ... the last line of The Maytrees is so lovely that it may send you right back to the book s beginning.' --New York Times
