Reviews

Intense, controlled, a memoir-as-fever-dream. --The New York Times

It's a rare pleasure to be in the hands of a memoirist both old enough and good enough to wring this kind of coherence from life's chaos. --The New York Times Book Review

Like a string of Chinese firecrackers. --Washington Post

This woman traffics in the truth. --Anne Lamott

A wholly original, beautiful book. --Michael Downing, author of Life with Sudden Death

The vividness of those people and the hard-to-describe implicit sanity and moral clarity that underly the always-about-to-get-out-of-control voice gets to feel funny, sane, heartbreaking, and so deeply intelligent . . . It is just brilliant, and true. --Robert Hass, author of Now & Then
