“Agile. . . transporting . . . a book that works as both character study and morality play, filled with questions that have no easy answers.”Janet Maslin, New York Times

“Like Nabokov’s Humbert Humbert, Schroder is charming and deceptive, likable and flawed, a conman who has a clever way with words. Schroder’s tale is deeply engaging, and Gaige’s writing is surprising and original, but the real pull of this magnetic novel is the moral ambiguity the reader feels.”People

“Enthralling…. Gaige displays an unnerving insight into the grandiosity and fragility of the middle-aged male ego…. Schroder is clearly her breakout book. With its psychological acuity, emotional complexity and topical subject matter, it deserves all the success it can find. I wish there were such a thing as a Divorced Couples Book Club just so we could listen in on the tangled responses.”The Washington Post

“On occasion… a novel will provoke a host of tangled and disconcertingly conflicted reactions-revulsion and affection; blame and understanding; a connection that goes beyond surface sympathy to a deeper, and possibly unwanted, emotional recognition. These were among the things I experienced while reading Amity Gaige’s astoundingly good novel Schroder.”The Wall Street Journal
