Reviews

"Quart's gift as a writer is her ability to report on the experiences of ordinary people, following their realistically messy lives for years, offering us vivid portraits that are profoundly humane."
--The New York Times Book Review

"[Quart's] careful reporting and vividly rendered characters make the book a vital, engaging read."
--Psychology Today

"Instructive for those who do creative work, and even for people who are trying to engage in any kind of meaningful self-definition: Don't always accept other people's categories. You can always make your own."
--Fast Company

"With brief but telling glimpses of the many people she interviews, the author makes connections that wouldn't otherwise be obvious...a liberating vision of interlocking subcultures."
--Columbus Dispatch
