About the Author

Her final essay, "You May Want to Marry My Husband," was published in the New York Times Modern Love column and quickly went viral. Amy Krouse Rosenthal died ten days after the publication in March 2017.
"Entries are consistently amusing, revelatory, poetic, or strike that "That's exactly how I see/experience it!" synapse in the brain...A+." --The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)

"[Rosenthal] shines her generous light of humanity on the seemingly humdrum moments of life and shows how delightfully precious they actually are...a marvelous memoir." --The Chicago Sun-Times

"Encyclopedia has miles of pillow book charm...Rosenthal's humor is generous and endearingly scattershot." --The Village Voice

"Reading it, you get the feeling that not only would you like Amy to be your best friend because she's so thoughtful and endearing but because the most ordinary of moments do not escape her own unique sense of profundity." --The Detroit News

"The perfect postmodern memoir, collecting the bits and pieces of a so-called average life and filing them into a clever narrative that reveals "ordinary" is anything but." --Sun-Sentinel (South Florida)
