Behind the Scenes:

Praise for SIRACUSA:
“This stylishly written and razor-sharp novel of manners is perfect for audio…Each adult is voiced by a different narrator, and all four hit their marks with wonderful crispness and understanding of the characters they play. An absolutely delicious listen.”—AudioFile Earphones Award

“A master of precise and keen character development, a virtuoso of pacing and surprise, a wizard at skewering convention and expectation, Ephron offers a bewitching take on relationships—marital, parental, casual, and serious—in this read-in-one-sitting, escapist escapade with a message.”—Booklist

“beach read for those interested in romantic suspense or travel writing…”—Library Journal

“a seductive and edgy dissection of two imploding marriages.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review
