Reviews

[Ironside] has done her readers a wonderful service in giving us the fictional Marie Sharp.... "No! I Dont Want to Join a Book Club" is, in fact, a perfect choice for book clubs. It takes on the biggest issuesour lives, loves, deathsin acerbic, tender, thoughtful ways. Perfect for clubs, perfect for (almost) everybody.
"The Washington Post"
Screamingly funnyreads like an AARP-issued "Bridget Jones Diary,"This is the kind of book you gobble up, then re-read so you can hoot out loud all over again.
"USA Today"
Maries wicked sense of humor makes this a fun read. . . . This novel is more than a light romp. Marie shows great heart and wisdom as she experiences joys and sorrows.
"The Herald Sun"
So funny and human, so full of cranky wisdom and plucky resistance to the ordinary ways of facing old age. Im thinking of reading "No! I Dont Want to Join a Book Club" once a year from here on in to cheer myself up. If youre over fifty, you should read it, too.
