"The Middlesteins had me from its very first pages, but it wasn't until its final pages that I fully appreciated the range of Attenberg's sympathy and the artistry of her storytelling."Jonathan Franzen, author of Freedom

"The Middlesteins is a tender, sad and funny look at a family and their mother. In fact, it's so readable, it's practically edible."Meg Wolitzer, author of The Interestings

"A sharp-tongued, sweet-natured masterpiece of Jewish family life."Kirkus Review

"Expansive heart and sly wit... Throughout this poignant novel, the characters wrestle with two defining questions: What do we owe each other after a life together? What do we owe ourselves?"Abbe Wright, O Magazine
