PRAISE FOR RED HOOK ROAD

A thoroughly gripping and elegantly written story about love, grief, friendship, and the unexpected ways in which disaster brings families together. The novel is chockfull of revelations and insights on how people both unravel and manage to find grace under strain.

--Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner

This beautiful novel shows us how families cope with the most painful kinds of loss and reminds us that even as grief fractures, it can pave the way for unexpected grace.

--Ann Packer, author of The Dive from Clausen's Pier

Every day, families are shoved into new realities. Red Hook Road is a masterful imagining of the way a single tragic event impacts the psyches and behaviors and dynamics of two families. Waldman's writing is elegant and riveting.

--Kelly Corrigan, author of The Middle Place

You won't be able to tear yourself away from Waldman's powerful evocation of grief.

--Real Simple

This engagingly complex examination of two close families is a leap ahead for the essayist and author.

--O, The Oprah Magazine

A] lyrical tale of love and loss... Waldman's startling premise--a newly married couple dies in an automobile accident en route to their reception--sets the scene for this searing, soul-searching examination of human emotions and reactions.

Readers who enjoy family sagas will find this book a pleasure.

--Library Journal

A literary puzzle with rich intellectual and emotional rewards... Red Hook Road proves life and art are worth it.
