Critical Praise

“Leary writes with humor and insight, revealing both the pure pleasure of drinking and the lies and justifications of alcoholism...a layered and complex portrait of a woman struggling with addiction, in a town where no secret stays secret for long.”
    — J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times Book Review

“Fresh, sharp, and masterfully told. Hildy’s tale is as intoxicating as it is sobering.”
    — People

“Ann Leary’s THE GOOD HOUSE creates a one-of-a-kind character in Hildy Good. By the end you’ll be flipping pages, trying desperately to piece together what happened as much as the narrator is doing herself.”
    — Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of HOUSE RULES and SING YOU HOME
