Reviews

"Mairs is an iconoclastic thinker; hers is an unusually original book and a great pleasure to read." --Publishers Weekly

"This is a provocative, honest, and revealing portrayal of how one writer deals with rejection and who is determined to fully despite multiple sclerosis." --Library Journal

"A small miracle of honesty mediated by dignity and humor." --Francine Prose, New York Newsday

" [A] rich and wise collection about becoming a writer (and a woman)...grounded in a wry and candid account of a life that would have most others hanging on the ropes...hers is a singular voice we can all attend to." --Faye Moskowitz, Washington Post Book World

"It is fascinating to watch Nancy Mairs grappling with theoretical issues in a way that makes them personal and immediate. As in her previous work, Mairs shows the courage and tenacity and honesty of a true personal essayist." --Philip Lopate, author of Two Marriages
