"Beautifully written. The ordinary moments of life become luminous, lovely, under this compassionate eye."--Elizabeth Strout, author of "Amy and Isabelle""The finest novel published in some years in our country.... Its grace, its generosity, its humanity are present on each of its pages."--Carol Shields, "The Ottawa Citizen""A Good House is a deep read. You keep finding more and more satisfaction in the unshowy craft, the unique vision of this writer who can tell you hard truths, hopefully."--Alice Munro, author of "The Love of a Good Woman"
