Praise forWoman No. 17

';Woman No. 17is propulsive and moving, and considers vital questions with empathy and sly intelligence. . . . A winning novel. 'The New York Times Book Review

';Lepucki's exploration of personal relationships takes on an increasingly noirish tone: Much like Chekhov's gun, a swimming pool introduced early in the book takes on the shadows of a floating body long before the reader realizes this might be a possibility.'Elle

';Edan Lepucki'sWoman No. 17is part family melodrama, part twisty self-reflection. . . . Very funny.'GQ

';WhileWoman No. 17does possess all the trappings of a frothy page-turnerstormy arguments, showy melodrama, and (oops!) an affairthere are some quiet, serious moments, too. It's the intersection between the two that makes this read both scintillating and thought-provoking.'San Francisco Chronicle
