Praise for Flesh and Blood

“A work of dramatic humanity at a high and poetic level.” —Los Angeles Times

“Reading Michael Cunningham is like putting on see-through glasses. He's got this way of exposing his characters' deepest inclinations and motivations, letting us peer through glass directly into their souls.” —The Boston Globe

“The book buzzcuts like Edward Scissorhands through the conventionally dull pastures of the American family saga.” —Vanity Fair
