“In this novel - a sequel to Wish You Were Here - we follow Emily Maxwell, an aging widow who walks a fine line between loneliness and her newfound independence. O'Nan convincingly portrays the mind, heart, and memory of an elderly woman, evoking her solitude poignantly but without resorting to emotional manipulation or sentimentality. O'Nan is one of the most versatile storytellers, and this book further guarantees his place in the pantheon of contemporary American writers.”
