Tin House Title "Adult Onset" in NY Times Book Review

Critically acclaimed author Ann-Marie MacDonald, author of New York Times Bestsellers Fall On Your Knees and The Way the Crow Flies, garners praise for Tin House Books with her latest work, Adult Onset.

Wondering at Adult Onset's potential to become the Great Canadian Novel, reviewer Maggie Pouncey writes,

“Books like [MacDonald's] have a continental sweep: The writer amply stocks them with people and ideas, with all she knows.

Spare, quiet perfection isn’t the aim.”

Pouncey remarks, simply:

“It’s a testament to the power of this book that it is in moments difficult to endure.”

Additionally, she comments on MacDonald's at-times highly quotable, humorous quips:

“Like Wilde, MacDonald has an epigrammatic wit."


“MacDonald loves wordplay;

grammar, for her, is a sanctuary of order.”

Our congratulations go out to both Ann-Marie MacDonald and Tin House Books for such a fantastic review - While you celebrate, we'll be out picking up copies for everyone we know!
