“A big-hearted book, tenderly intelligent and mirthfully incisive in its exploration of family, class, and the difficulty of reconciling our own natures with the way we nurture others. In Greathead’s capable hands, Laura & Emma become luminously real, a lens through which the rarefied, often contradictory world of elite New York comes charmingly alive.”
—Alexandra Kleeman, author of You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine and Intimations

“I stayed up all night to finish Laura & Emma. Weeks later, I’m still thinking about Laura, still bothered by her troubles, and marveling at how Kate Greathead made these characters and this world so real to me. A brave, unassuming, wonderful first novel.”
—Rebecca Schiff, author of The Bed Moved
