Critical Praise

"Dunmore's blend of eerie suspense and musical language is reminiscent of such literary thrillers as Margaret Atwood's Surfacing and Rosellen Brown's Before and After."

—Valerie Miner, Chicago Tribune

"meditation on the past and loss and how we cope with who we become. . . . Dunmore writes gracefully and has an excellent sense of place."

—Mark Lindquist, New York Times Book Review

"Graceful and intelligent. . . . The atmosphere Dunmore creates is so rich that it makes Your Blue-Eyed Boy well worth reading."

—Laurie Muchnick, Newsday

"intriguing thriller. . . . It has a chilling sense of creepiness that will subtly entice and disarm you."

—Kathleen Jacobs, Redbook
