A moving, hilarious, and deeply perceptive novel of universal themes: family, love and greed.
The Middlesteins had me from its very first pages
Family ties are anything but simple, and the joy of this book lies in Attenberg's merciless, tender, often brilliantly funny peeling back of the layers of history. Sublime.
Flows like double cream ... Like the best culinary confections, Attenberg's prose is complex, bitter as well as tender
Blazing, ferocious and greathearted ... The Middlesteins will blow you away
Attenberg makes her characters' thoughts - Richard and Benny in particular - seem utterly real, and her wry, observational humor often hits sideways rather than head-on ... [A] wonderfully messy and layered family portrait
