Reviews

"Poetic.... Thomas is an observant and graceful writer." --The New York Times Book Review

"Razor-sharp pieces of radiant truth...not so much memoir as a stained glass window made up of scenes garnered from a life. This is an unforgettable portrait of a grown-up woman who has learned how to rejoice in being herself. Reading it, we feel the crazy beauty of life." --Anne Lamott, author of Bird by Bird and Traveling Mercies

"Elegantly framed vignettes that quickly bring us to the essence of a game, bemused woman with a vivid interest in love." --Elle

"Safekeeping is a sapphire...pointy, gleaming, in the end, blue.... You know a form is right when, in the end, you can't imagine a story told any other way. Abigail Thomas walks the edge of the form's boundaries; her stories are haunted by adjectives." --Los Angeles Times Book Review
