"A fiercely intelligent and satisfying novel, but also an incredibly sad one, because to read "The Furies is, I suspect, to get to know Janet Hobhouse, really know her, and then to lose her." "This is a grim, tough, powerful, and beautiful book, the memoir of a genuine heroine, whose struggle against the calamities that beset her -- beginning with the wounds inflicted by a remote coldhearted father and a pathetically helpless mother and ending with the anguish of a wrecked marriage, the mother's suicide, and the author's own fatal illness -- was waged with enormous intelligence and fortitude, and even with flair. At the heart of the book -- and depicted with pitiless candor -- is the tortuous bond of love between mother and daughter. That at the end of her brief life, Janet Hobhouse could transform her suffering into a confession so precise and evocative and singularly unselfpitying, so strangely full of verve, strikes me as a considerable moral as well as literary achivement." -- Philip Roth "A stunning heartbreaker of a book, shot through with pellucid sadness...[an] extraordinary last book in which [Hobouse's] pain is as insistent--and lustrous--as her craft." --S
