Praise For Lady of the Snakes…
PRAISE FOR THIS SIDE OF MARRIED
"In this delightful novel, the mating habits of the subspecies we might call Very Intelligent Women are examined by a writer whose eye is sharp, whose wit is keen, and whose heart is open to the possibilities that love offers."--Ann Packer, author of The Dive from Clausen’s Pier
"A loving homage to the spirit of Jane Austen."--The Boston Globe
"Can a woman have both a fulfilling career and a storybook family life? ... If you want to see the dilemma smartly dramatized in the experience of an appealing, intelligent heroine, read Rachel Pastan''s crisp novel, Lady of the Snakes."
"Pastan''s writing is fluid and frank, and her characters are luminescent."
"Pastan has an assured, deft and lovely voice ... Pastan admirably tackles the challenge of writing in both contemporary voices and the voices of two 19th-century Russians."
