'A tour de force by any standards One reason for Miller's popularity is that she earns her fans in a time-honoured way: she writes for readers' Newsweek 'Each of her characters is complete and distinctive, a compendium of lovable and exasperating traits Each character has a turn at capturing our full attention' Los Angeles Times 'Miller's special brand of intelligent emotionalism reaches its zenith here: it's deep, resonant, splendid' Kirkus Review 'For Love may be the most honest twentieth-century love story we've had in a while Sue Miller maps emotional terrain carefull, precisely, graphically, with a grit and grace that at first invite the reader's appreciation - and then, before we know it, have us involved a vivid allegory for all the harm that love can bring' New York Times Book Review
