      “At first, We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves seems like it’s going to be one of those smart, wacky books about families, but it just keeps getting deeper and darker and more complicated, turning in ways I never saw coming (and still managing to make me laugh.) If you missed the front page rave review in the New York Times Book Review by Barbara Kingsolver, well, good. Don’t read the reviews on this one. Don’t read the flap copy. Just read the book and let yourself be surprised. It really is a magnificent piece of work. My greatest joy has been handing it to people and telling them they have to read it. They keep coming back to tell me how much they loved it.”
