“What Brown does so expertly is to summon the brief, intimate moments—the single word shared between two characters, the simple gesture that quietly reveals hope.”

"Brown may be the John Updike for a new generation."
- Library Journal (starred review of Doubles)
"[Brown] gets it righter than right, delivering a dizzying wallop to the gut."
