Named one of The 2020 Books You Should Pre-Order Now by Marie Claire
"[A] charmingly written coming of age story." --Kirkus Starred Reviews
""Elegant... The nimble, astute narration appeals. This meditation on the passing of youth is touching and ruefully funny."--Publishers Weekly
"Lily King is one of our great literary treasures and Writers & Lovers is suffused with her brilliance. It is captivating, potent, incisive, and wise, a moving story of grief, and recovering from grief, and of a young woman finding her courage for life."--Madeline Miller, author of Circe "Gorgeous!"--Elizabeth Strout, author of Olive Kitteridge Writers & Lovers is a portrait of the artist as a young woman. Lily King writes masterfully about desire and loss, creativity and inspiration, and how each overlaps and influences the other. I found myself reading slowly, underlining phrases, wanting to linger in the world of this novel. Her insights about love -- how it is elusive and ineffable -- and about grief -- how it is something that you live inside -- took my breath away."--Christina Baker Kline, author of A Piece of the World "Writers & Lovers stole my heart from its first pages. I am in love with this book. In. Love. This deep dive of a novel will stay with me forever." --Elin Hilderbrand, author of Summer of '69 "My favourite of Lily King's books so far. Exuberant and affirming, it's funny and immensely clever, emotionally rare and strong. I feel bereft now I've finished."--Tessa Hadley, author of Late In The Day "If you loved The Friend but wish it had had more sex and waitressing, get ready for Lily King's Writers and Lovers. Delicious." -- Emma Straub Praise for Euphoria
"Taut, witty, fiercely intelligent... King is brilliant."--New York Times Book Review
"Intense, seductive, sexual, and intellectual... There are so many exhilarating elements to savor in Euphoria... Brava to Lily King."--San Francisco Chronicle "As concentrated as orchid food, packing as much narrative power and intellectual energy into its 250 pages as novels triple its size."--Newsday "Atmospheric and sensual... An intellectually stimulating tour de force."--NPR Praise for Father of the Rain
"Surprising and wise...An absorbing, insightful story written in cool, polished prose right to the last conflicted line."--
Washington Post
"King is a beautiful writer, with equally strong gifts for dialogue and internal monologue."--New York Times Book Review "Haunting, incisive...King is brilliant."--Elle "An excellent novel, sensitive and perceptive."--Chicago Tribune
