“When you love Margaret Towne, you love all the Margaret Townes…. A droll piece of romantic whimsy, with an unexpected resonance.” Starred, Kirkus Reviews

“An original look at love and how you never really know your beloved.” Library Journal

“The story is darkly whimsical, and Zevin’s writing is both playful and touching.”  Publisher’s Weekly

Margarettown is a lovely short novel, a new type of love story: filled with classic romanticism and postmodern cynicism and introspection. Zevin is clearly talented and her first novel is highly recommended.”

“Quirky, yet insightful, slim in size, but rich in content, Margarettown is unlike anything I’ve read this year.” Book Page

“…a fresh, poignant story. A perfect summer read. Sweet and satisfying.”
Daily Candy

“wonderfully innovative… Reading Margarettown is quite literally a journey of discovery. We begin the novel curious and confused but, by the novel’s final pages, we realize that we’ve gained something just by reading it.”

I love this fan-made(?) book trailer. It perfectly conveys the book. I know nothing about the person who made it and I’m certain the song has not been cleared. One day, roughly seven years after the book was published (and flopped, I might add), the trailer mysteriously arrived in my inbox. I have prepared myself for it to disappear just as mysteriously.
