Reviews

"Engaging. . . . Down-to-earth. . . . Smiley's unmediated voice-blunt, uncompromising and witty-rings from every page. . . . She inspires wicked delight." -Los Angeles Times Book Review

"A massive victory. . . . Awfully smart. . . . Always a pleasure." -The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Provocative. . . . Wise and humane. . . . It reminds readers of the novel why they love their avocation. . . . I most heartily recommend it." -Marjorie Kehe, The Christian Science Monitor

"Thorough, insightful. . . . Sure to inspire delicious debate and excite interest in undiscovered works. . . . Her critiques are shrewd, artful and unflinching. . . . Thirteen Ways continues to whisper its profundities long after the last page is turned." -Rocky Mountain News
