Reviews

"Alison Smith has written a beautiful, completely unsentimental memoir so full of love and sorrow and the stuff of everyday that you live in it as much as read it."
-- Anna Quindlen
"Stunning...[a] story of survival and sexual awakening."
-- O, The Oprah Magazine
"Smith writes with such assured distance that this quiet examination of grief reads more like biography than autobiography, and displays a novelist's gift for revealing character."
-- Newsweek
"Makes time stand still and your coffee go cold beside you."
-- Elissa Schappell, The New York Times Book Review
"Sometimes a friend will ask you about a book you've read and everything you say winds up sounding inadequate. Name All the Animals is that kind of book....This is the story of my life, too, told so I finally understand it. Which, in the memoir department, means that it is pretty perfect."
-- Anna Quindlen, Book-of-the-Month Club judge, writing in BOMC News
