Jill Ciment has written a great "domestic" thriller – from the reader harstan

“Dorothy the dachshund, on the other hand, bristles with purpose. You can just imagine the workshop exercise — “Write a story in three perspectives: that of two pet owners and their dog” — but Dorothy is a winning character, with a believably canine personality and point of view… To It’s funny what books stick in one’s mind; it doesn’t have to do — precisely, anyway — with how much one oohs and ahs while reading them, but rather with some lasting illumination the writer affords the reader. I doubt I’ll walk through the East Village again without thinking of Alex and Ruth Cohen. Ciment’s short, detailed novel effectively reveals this older twosome to us, this couple whom time and circumstance have prevented us from actually meeting (unless, at that open house?), yet whom we instantly and intimately know.”---NYT Book Review, Caitlin Macy

“A brave, generous, nearly perfect novel. . .”---Los Angeles Times

“A testament to Ciment’s lauded writing style. . . Heroic Measures will delight eager fans awaiting Ciment’s next work.”---The Daily Beast
