Reviews

"There's a clarity to this memoir that's so brilliant it's unsettling; Gornick finds a measure of freedom in her writing and her feminist activism, but even then, she and her mother can never let each other go." -- Jennifer Szalai, The New York Times Book Review

"There are only so many words in the dictionary with which to say how very good this book is. Fierce Attachments deserves them all." --The Washington Post Book World

"Gornick is a distinctive and startling artist--the true subject of this brilliant book." --The Nation

"Searingly intimate and courageous... Gornick's writing is brilliant, clean, and colorful, simultaneously evoking the inner and outer spaces she is trying to illuminate." --Mother Jones

"Inspiring... Gornick carves, in careful, electrifying words, each scar and glory of her unconventional life." --Guardian Book Supplement
