Lansens, Lori — Psychological acuity makes Lori Lansens' and Julia Glass' well-developed characters live and breathe. Writing tales of dysfunctional families, failed marriages, and seemingly untenable lives, they both create moving, intimate portraits of complex human relationships. -- Mike Nilsson
Price, Reynolds, 1933-2011 — These authors of leisurely paced and reflective literary fiction examine dysfunctional families and what makes some stay together and others fall apart.

Farrington, Tim — Although Julia Glass' work has a more emotionally raw tone than Tim Farrington's, both authors write witty, intimate, and unflinchingly honest domestic fiction that explores what brings families together (or tears them apart). Their work features sympathetic characterization, elegant yet accessible prose, and nuanced approaches to difficult moral questions. -- Derek Keyser
