Reviews

"A wonderfully fluent blend of intelligence, tenderness, and vitality. [The Doctor's Daughter] fearlessly explores the difficult terrain of the family romance and the unromantic decisions we all make as we try to make sense of our lives and our memories."-Mary Gordon "The Doctor's Daughter marks Hilma Wolitzer's much-anticipated return to the world of fiction. It is a beautiful tale of coming apart and reconciliation."-A. M. Homes "An exquisitely nuanced novel that brilliantly examines one of the abiding truths of the human condition: the quest for self never ceases. Hilma Wolitzer's new novel is just cause for celebration, as it shows her at the peak of her prodigious powers."-Robert Olen Butler "Hilma Wolitzer's characters are as real as the people next door. And, oh, the eye and ear at work here! The Doctor's Daughter is a book I both admired and devoured."-Elinor Lipman "To read Hilma Wolitzer is to laugh in a special way and to allow yourself little intermissions of sheer satisfaction in which you lay the open book facedown on your heart and snuggle with the human race. The Doctor's Daughter is her masterpiece."-Gail Godwin "This intensely readable book unfolds so gracefully that we are hardly aware of the many layers of the journey on which it takes us."-Elizabeth Strout "Hilma Wolitzer's The Doctor's Daughter reminds us what novels can do. She takes a simple, touching, human situation and enlarges it into a heartbreaking and permanent story of loss and renewal."-Adam Gopnik "This is a lovely novel-wonderfully well written, intelligent, perceptive, and rich."-Elizabeth Berg "From the Hardcover edition."
