“Surprising and satisfying…. Will keep readers turning the pages.” –Boston Globe

“What might have been simply the story of a man leaving his marriage for a younger woman blossoms into much more. …A fictive musical and familial feast.” –Michele Leber, Booklist (starred review)

“This wise, elegant novel maps the fallout from a passionate affair over the course of two decades. …Kalotay writes with grace and authority. –Tom Perrotta, New York Times bestselling author of The Leftovers

“Kalotay really shines when discussing musicians making music—[and] she effectively shows us how performing artists live.” – Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal

“Compulsively readable, memorable, and wise.” –Nancy Richler, award-winning author of The Imposter Bride

“[Sight Reading] reads like an amazingly accurate biographical account of today’s music school life. …Kalotay manages to capture the fleeting exultation that performers feel whenever they play. It is as if she has been on stage, bow in hand, ready to make or break her career with a single piece of music.” – New York Journal of Books
