Reviews

New Yorker contributor Frazier, who scored big with Great Plains, here reconstructs his family's history in America.

"[Frazier] is a writer of grace and charm." --The Washington Post Book World"It is a stunning book, written in sentences and paragraphs concealing emotional depth charges that explode across the gap from page to reader." --Geoffrey Stokes, The Boston Sunday Globe"Frazier takes the ordinary and clothes it with a sweetness that creates a special humanness for each family member." --Cleveland Plain Dealer"Mr. Frazier, in this remarkable history of an unremarkable family, plays both roles, the gossip and the pedant, balances skillfully, then adds his own insights as a loyal family member." --David Willis McCullough, The New York Times Book Review"A remarkable demonstration of Frazier's ability to write with rare, pure love and to make his feelings meaningful to casual passersby--his readers." --A Time magazine Best Book of 1994"The most unusual, compelling, and warmly received book of the season." --New York magazine"[Frazier is] a writer of uncommon grace and subtlety." --Chicago Tribune"Family is a keeper--an oddball classic that somehow manages to lodge itself squarely in the American grain." --Malcolm Jones Jr., Newsweek"Family grows from a look at one small, close-knit group of people into an appreciation of this whole country." --Dominic Gates, The Seattle Times"A rich and ennobling book, a transcendent affirmation of individual and communal purpose." --Tom De Haven, Entertainment Weekly
