Critical Praise

"What a joy to read. What a VOICE. The Weird Sisters is family drama dissected by verbal scalpel. If wit and language could protect against growing old, these bewitching sisters might never have to grow up."

—Helen Simonson, bestselling author of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand

"Even if you don’t have a sister, you may feel like you have one after reading this hilarious and utterly winsome novel. Eleanor Brown skillfully ties and then unties the Gordian knot of sisterhood, writing with such knowingness that when the ending came, and the three Andreas sisters --- who had slunk home for a rest from themselves only to find to their horror their other two sisters there as well --- emerge, I sighed the guilty sigh of pleasure and yes, of recognition."

—Sarah Blake, bestselling author of The Postmistress

"At once hilarious, thought-provoking and poignant, this sparkling and devourable debut explores the roles that we play with our siblings, whether we want to or not. The Weird Sisters is a tale of the complex family ties that threaten to pull us apart, but sometimes draw us together instead."

—J. Courtney Sullivan, bestselling author of Commencement

"The Weird Sisters is a chronicle of real women, because it tells the truths of sisters. Eleanor Brown has written a compelling novel about love, despair and birth order --- the themes the Bard himself had claimed and burnished."

—Min Jin Lee, author of Free Food for Millionaires
