Praise For The Position…
"Sly and delicious . . . Her richest and most substantial [novel yet]."
-- The Washington Post
"[In this] novel of sexual politics and family farce . . . Wolitzer's comic timing never wavers, and she has an astute grasp of the way one generation's liberation inspires the next generation's pity."
-- The New Yorker
"You know families are this funny, you know they are this weird. But never has this realization been such a welcome and entertaining relief."
-- The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Painfully funny and brilliantly executed . . . utterly original."
-- Augusten Burroughs, author of Running with Scissors
"Hilariously moving, sharply written . . . The Position will resonate with anyone who has ever walked in on their parents doing the deed -- and for all of us who have had to accept that our mothers and fathers are normal people with healthy sex drives."
-- USA Today
