Críticas:

[A] superbly grown-up love story . . . Lyrical, reserved and sometimes unsettling . . . Another expertly delivered portrait of the world from Roorbach (Life Among Giants, 2012, etc.), that poet of hopeless tangles. Kirkus Reviews, starred review One of the best novels of this or any year . . . A flat-out funny, sexy, and poignant romantic thriller. David Abrams, author of Fobbit The Remedy for Love is not the remedy for sleep deprivation. You ll stay up all night . . . It is relentless and brilliant. Leave it to Roorbach to tease out the subtlest nuances in the progress of love while stoking a tale that is as gripping as any Everest expedition--and that is also tender and terrifying and funny and, in the end, so true it seems inevitable. I m not sure there s another American writing today who can lay down a love story, or any story, with the depth and appeal and freshness of Bill Roorbach. Peter Heller, author of The Dog Stars"

"Snowbound in Maine, two strangers struggle to survive--fighting, flirting, baring secrets.
