17 Morton Street

This book chronicles the love lives of three sisters: Sara, who has an affair with her male au pair; Perri, who is weirdly obsessed with a cranky film editor; and Lucy, a plain academic who finds love unexpectedly.


Carolyn See wrote: “Catherine Hiller’s voice is both fresh and very beautiful. She writes of the great dilemmas of our time—love and loss, and the wonderful ambivalence of family—with a deft mind and a sure hand.” Barbara Raskin wrote in the Washington Post, “Catherine Hiller’s writing explodes with surprising insights, juicy characterizations, and familial truths.”


The novel was published in Holland (Herri in Huis) and Germany (Und denn kam Carlo). It was a Book-of-the-Month Club selection.
