Reviews

"An utterly wonderful novel. . .I envy everyone who enter, for the first time, its world." --Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World "A remarkably sly balancing act: a deeply sensual, richly imagined coming-of-age story that manages to use a wickedly satiric portrait of the uppercrust in the Manhattan of the early 1980s." --The Philadelphia Inquirer "An alluring novel, sure in its embrace of the reader. . .who is swep away by Moore's eye for detail."--Newsday "Ms. Moore possesses a finely tuned radar system for phoniness and pretension, and many of her cameo portraits glitter with a Waugh-like black humor. Indeed, she demonstrates in this novel that she not only has a gift for delineating the tragedies of domestic life...but that she also has a capacity for comic invention, for showing what happens when our vanities run amok."--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "An engrossing, sensual novel whose characters seem to live from the moment of their introduction and whose plot is both believable and satisfying. In short, The Whiteness of Bones is the kind of book you'll read, re-read, and remember."--West Coast Review of Books "So evocative you can almost feel the mud between your toes. . . . Moore makes her story as real and mysterious as any island legend, as powerful as the scent of the white ginger flowers." -Kirkus Reviews (starred) "Moore's controlled prose maintains her ambitiously serious intent. As much as women love Colette's and Virginia Woolf's portraits of adored mothers and their daughters, many will identify more with this wounded pair." -Ms. "Spare but lyrical. . . . An engrossing novel, profoundly disturbing in its message of feminine guilt." -Publishers Weekly "A remarkably sly balancing act: a deeply sensual, richly imagined coming-of-age story that manages to use a wickedly satiric portrait of the uppercrust in the Manhattan of the early 1980s." -The Philadelphia Inquirer "An engrossing, sensual novel whose characters seem to live from the moment of their introduction and whose plot is both believable and satisfying. In short, The Whiteness of Bones is the kind of book you'll read, re-read, and remember." -West Coast Review of Books
