The Washington Post - Julie Orringer

It's an ordinary-enough idea, that our individual point of view is necessarily limited and that we're linked in unknowable ways to the people around us. But to a novelist, the idea poses a delicious challenge: Can a satisfying and cohesive narrative be constructed from many disparate points of view?…In the hands of a lesser writer, such a challenge might lead to disaster. But in Day for Night, Reiken creates a fascinating, emotionally acute and, at times, mind-bogglingly complex story to which we surrender with delight…Like a master puppeteer himself, Reiken inhabits every one of these characters completely and invests each with an independent life.
