"Schulman is a torch."--Richard Howard
"One of the permanent poets of her generation."--Harold Bloom
"A beautiful journey to grief, injured yet searching, a stirring and engaging literary memoir, and a 'history' of an ever-changing New York City."--Carol Muske-Dukes
"We tread with her the stony path, then step into sunlit clearings. An unfazed woman of letters, vastly distinguished, her past now beaten to beauty, leads us to the heart of the mystery: two souls looking out together on the world. From its wonderful title forward, Strange Paradise swept me into a strong embrace. I know of no other book like it."--Benjamin Taylor, author of Proust: The Search and The Hue and Cry at Our House
"In a graceful, engaging memoir, Schulman . . . writes candidly about her marriage to virologist Jerome Schulman, her literary aspirations, and her grief following her husband's recent death. . . . An affecting recollection of a life rich in literature and love." --Kirkus Reviews
