The Condition your first choice for quality books
Praise for The Condition 'With humour, grace and an abiding compassion that is becoming her signature, Jennifer Haigh illuminates the dark tangle of desire and deed that is the family, that crucible we so often yearn to flee yet keep coming back to again and again. The Condition is unsentimental, compelling and moving, and I urge you to read it!' Andre Dubus III NYT bestselling author of House of Sand and Fog 'The ailment at the centre of this remarkable novel is the human condition itself. Jennifer Haigh has written a sprawling, emotionally gripping account of one family's troubled history, enlivened by her formidable intelligence and deep insight into her character's hearts and minds.' Tom Perrotta, bestselling author of Little Children 'Haigh creates a realistic family dynamic from richly drawn characters, capturing the family members' various expectations of assumptions about one another. Compelling; highly recommended for all fiction collections.' Library Journal Praise for Baker Towers 'The living, breathing organism that is Ms. Haigh's captivating book![is an] effortlessly haunting story!with satisfyingly real and vivid individuals!beyond being an expert natural storyteller with an acute sense of her characters' humanity,[she] sustains a clear sense of Bakerton's vitality, or lack thereof !this book has the heart to end, credibly and unsentimentally, on a note of rebirth. And Bakerton is utterly, entrancingly alive on the page even as it is supposed to be fading away.' Janet Maslin,New York Times A lovingly told, detailed novel of postwar America!compassionate and powerful!it is through the accretion of tiny, telling details, of finely observed moments, that a universe is created and a spell cast!This is a book of great heart, a song of praise for a too-little-praised part of America-for the working families whose toils and constancy have done so much to make the country great.' Chicago Tribune 'Haigh's got a keen way of getting inside the hopes and discomforts of her characters. She moves lightly between snippets of anecdote and insight, creating her world sparingly, convincingly, matter-of-factly.' San Francisco Chronicle Haigh has constructed a hypnotic portrait of a coal-country mining town that spans a quarter century and captures wistfully the demise of the culture![Haigh] is capable of creating flesh and blood characters are authentic and idiosyncratic!The novel is constructed around consciously small moments of ordinary domesticity!In page after page Haigh demonstrates her profound ability to illuminate the personal encounters and minor revelations that make up a life, while offering a crisp, insightful snapshot of a particular place and time." Boston Globe 'Jennifer Haigh gets a memorable grip on family and locale in her vivid novel Baker Towers!It's hard to escape!the characterizations and the texture Haigh conjures so effectively carry this largely superb novel. Haigh's tone is pitch-perfect, her grasp of psychology, masterly. The way Joyce Novak develops, overcoming the chill in her loins to connect with the warmth of her heart, is but one example of a command equal to those of Richard Russo and Anne Tyler, novelists who also examine the large issues that roil small towns. Baker Towers isn't perfect, but it sure is close.' Denver Post Praise for Mrs Kimble 'At turns beautiful, devastating and complex, Mrs. Kimble explores the interplay between deception and vulnerability, betraying Haigh's ambitious talent in the process." Chicago Tribune 'The talent evident in this novel is stunning. The question is not whether Haigh might turn out to be a good writer. Rather, we have the intriguing possibility that the next great American author is already in print.' Fort Worth Star-Telegram 'The measured prose and care for detail show a promising talent' Kirkus Reviews 'Like The Hours!Mrs Kimble tells the interlocking stories of three very different women!a clever premise, backed up by three remarkably well limned Mrs. Kimbles." Washington Post Book World Praise for Jennifer Haigh "Her talent is stunning...The question is not whether Jennifer Haigh might turn out to be a good writer. Rather, we have the intriguing possibility that the great American author is already in print." Fort Worth Star-Telegram "A novelist who can really tell a story...we're in the hands of a master, one who fully subscribes to what author Alice Mattison describes as the opportunity to give fiction a chance to mean something. Haigh writes from her soul." Milwaukee Journal Sentinal "Haigh's writing is rich and mellifluous." The Times
