Reviews

"Extraordinary. . . . Everything about this book seems perfect." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Fresh, galvanizing and articulate . . . a narrative that asks as many questions as it answers. Cogent, thoughtful and honest." --The New York Times

"One cannot read. . . and not be stirred . . . As moving as it is sparse, as revealing as it is concealing, as straightforward as it is complex." --Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Engaging. . . . Salzman creates a cast of lively, convincing, and hugely sympathetic characters and True Notebooks is filled with powerfully moving scenes." --O, The Oprah Magazine
