Reviews

Took off like a rocket, taking me with it * The Times *
A convincing and rather compelling story of a very modern marriage and a real heroine to root for * Daily Mail *
A wonderful, funny, inventive novel that takes you slowly by surprise the more you read. Highly recommended * Red (Book of the Month) *
The intrigue and small disappointments of marriage are painstakingly captured. * Psychologies *
A Fresh and modern look at relationships, told with heart. * Elle *
A charming and serious tale of marriage, family and identity. Its prose style is intimate, almost conspiratorial... threading its arm around the reader confidently. The writing is clear and spare... yet Freudenberger's investigation into what makes relationships work... is complex and sophisticated... Freudenberger approaches her subject with great sensitivity, a heavy sense of the seriousness of life - and much wry humour. * Independent on Sunday *
There are some piercing cultural observations... the chapters zip along with purpose and the novel flits effortlessly between the false intimacy of suburban America and the closely knit gossipy communities of Dhaka * Independent *
A powerful sense of empathy, of being able to imagine what it is to be soemone else, to feel what someone else feels -- Mohsin Hamid
Every minute I was away from this book I was longing to be back in the world she created -- Ann Patchett, author of 'State of Wonder'
This classic tale of missed chances, crushing errors of judgment, and scarring sacrifices, all compounded by cultural differences, is perfectly pitched, piercingly funny, and exquisitely heartbreaking * Booklist starred review *
Wise, timely, ripe with humour and complexity, The Newlyweds is one of the most believable love stories of our young century -- Gary Shteyngart, author of 'Super Sad True Love Story'
