About this title

Synopsis:

A latest work by the PEN/Malamud-winning author of Who Will Run the Frog Hospital? is set on a small midwestern farm just after the September 11 attacks and finds a twenty-year-old woman coming of age amid such challenges as racism, the War on Terror, and cruelty in the name of love.

Review:

Witty and disturbing ... the novel resonates with coming-of-age poignancy and wise-cracking self-deprecation... the bleakness is profound, but her dark humour pulls you through. (Guardian)

A masterly work ... alternating between the playful and the tragic, Moore is the kind of writer who shifts invisible gears to reveal chasms beneath. Like a younger and insouciant Anne Tyler, she replays commonplace observations from everyday life in new and subversive ways. (Independent)

This novel is a testament to Moore's capacity not only as a storyteller but as a writer willing to engage with the world as it is today ... always tender, never sentimental, often heartbreakingly funny. A Gate At The Stairs confirms Moore as one of the preeminent American writers working today. (Irish Times)
