Chris Castellani, All This Talk of Love

“The many faces of home, all of them dear, all of them hard-won, all of them so complicated and confusing and beloved, lie at the heart of this tenderest of novels. If there is a better book about what it means to be in a family, I haven’t read it.”
Stacey d’Erasmo, author of The Sky Below

“I loved this book for both its wit and its compassion. Chris Castellani has a steady, sustained belief in the goodness of the human spirit. to be able to convey both comedy and tragedy in a single novel is a remarkable gift.”
Anita Shreve, author of Rescue
