  • The Lovely Bones

  • PRAISE FOR THE LOVELY BONES:

    "Mesmerizing....Sebold deals with almost unthinkable subjects with humor and intelligence and a kind of mysterious grace." (New York Times Book Review).

  • "Sebold teaches us much about living and dying, holding on and letting go, as messy and imperfect and beautiful as the processes can be--and has created a novel that is painfully fine and accomplished, one which readers will have their own difficulties relinquishing, long after the last page is turned." (Los Angeles Times).

  • "A stunning achievement." (The New Yorker).

  • "Susie Salmon is one of the more captivating creations of recent fiction. Sebold has crafted a gripping tale of tragedy and grief....Nothing short of a revelation." (O).
