Reviews & Press

Reviews/Press  
  "Luminous ... [In All Saints] refreshing insights into teen angst are matched by midlife crisis candor.... Callanan gets into [his heroine's] head with page-turning panache and authority."
--Publishers Weekly

“A stunning piece of writing by a genuinely precocious talent: haunting and
smooth and wise
.”
--Christopher Buckley, author of Thank You for Smoking

“Liam Callanan is that rare thing, a writer adept and creative enough to
inhabit the mind of character entirely different from himself. He does so
completely, with absolute authenticity and emotional truth. Emily Hamilton
is unapologetically acerbic and a delight to spend time with. This book is
every bit as good as The Cloud Atlas, and that is saying a lot
.”
--Ayelet Waldman, author of Love and Other Impossible Pursuits

"A jewel of a book: bright, sharp-witted, full of the secret yearnings of everyday American life. I found myself thinking about Emily Hamilton long after I closed the book…Realizing that I'd maybe even fallen a little in love with her. Other readers will fall for her, too--and for this book."
--Dan Chaon, author of You Remind Me of Me

"ALL SAINTS is about the mystery and danger of love, all kinds of love--so intense and funny and wise. Emily Hamilton has such a complicated, appealing voice--at once guarded and full of passion, energy, irreverence. She is a great and serious character, a real triumph. I couldn't put it down."
--Susan Shreve, author of A Student of Living Things
