Reviews

"Pointillist in detail, lapidary in method and brutal in effect...an eloquent, disturbing memoir." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"Original and elegant...A celebration of resilience--both of character and of the memoir form." --Sandra Scofield, Chicago Tribune

"Restrained yet unsparing...Fox is an accomplished writer, with a gift for penetrating to the heart of complex feelings and complicated situations." --Merle Rubin, Los Angeles Times
