Review:

"There's a point in the narrative where one of the characters becomes so engrossed in reading a book that she loses track of time. Readers of Genova's latest excellent offering might very well find the same happening to them."--Kirkus

Writing with deep empathy and insight, Genova has created an engaging story that fearlessly asks the big questions.--Booklist

"With every line of that last letter as written from Anthony, I wept harder ... My heart, my chest, my throat, my face, my eyes pulsated with something so painful, yet so beautiful and happy at the same time ... and if there is one thing every Mom with a child of Autism should know, it's the perspective written within that letter."--T. Elaine, "Goodreads" reviewer

"It's not just a good book about autism, it's a good book that happens to have autism in it."--N. McKibben, "Goodreads" reviewer

"In "Love Anthony", Olivia is dealing with the death of her autistic young son, Anthony ... Genova's writing is getting stronger with each book, in my opinion. I recommend all of her books. I cannot wait to read anything else she writes."--"Melissa's Book Picks"

"""Lisa Genova's novels ring true. "Love Anthony", like Genova's two previous novels, is beautifully written, and poignant to the point of heartbreak...Anyone who has had even a passing contact with an autistic child will relate."--USA Today

"""Lisa Genova's novels ring true. "Love Anthony," like Genova's two previous novels, is beautifully written, and poignant to the point of heartbreak...Anyone who has had even a passing contact with an autistic child will relate."--USA Today

"Autism is like a Zen "koan"--a riddle without answers.., with effects that are myriad, mysterious, and confounding. The same could be said about "love." This book upended my perceptions of both conditions, leaving me feeling with my mind and thinking with my heart. Everyone should read this book!" --Jamie Ford, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet"
