Reviews

"A delightful reminder that we all deserve more joy in our lives. Zoe Fishman has created an unforgettable protagonist who wrestles with the universal struggle to come to terms with who we are and who we want to be in the face of tragedy. Equal parts touching and poignantly funny, The Fun Widow's Book Tour is a surefire bookclub favorite." -- Jo Piazza, bestselling author of Charlotte Walsh Likes to Win

"Tender and real, Fishman's peek behind the proverbial curtain manages to somehow be heartbreaking and life-affirming both at once. I laughed and I cried, but most of all I finished this luminous novel having learned, along with Mia, that kindness isn't a commodity, and that art is the one true language of the heart." -- Nora McInerny, bestselling author and creator/host of the podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking

"Oh, how I loved The Fun Widow's Book Tour by Zoe Fishman! It's the sort of book you want to press into the hand of your best friend. Funny and smart and filled with nuggets of truth about life, death, and love, this book feels like a hug from a loved one. I could not put it down." -- Brenda Janowitz, author of The Grace Kelly Dress

"A poignant, witty ode to friendship and family." -- People

"The Fun Widow's Book Tour is a funny, poignant story told in Fishman's signature warm, breezy voice." -- Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Fishman (Invisible As Air, 2019) delivers an engaging novel that is sure to appeal to readers of her previous books as well as to readers who enjoy contemporary fiction by Amy Poeppel, Elizabeth Berg, Emma Straub, and Elinor Lipman, and all stories that feature women relatably navigating uncharted emotional territory with heart and humor." -- Booklist

"The characters in Invisible as Air are so real; so flawed; so compelling and vulnerable. With her trademark wit and honesty, even in the face of sorrow, Fishman will take you on a journey you won't soon forget." -- Greer Hendricks, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of An Anonymous Girl

"Though it speaks to one of the most difficult issues facing our nation with wisdom and deep grace, this is not an 'issue' book. This is a book about people, flawed but striving, broken but hopeful. Once I started, I couldn't put it down." -- Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of Never Have I Ever, on Invisible as Air

"With psychological acuity, Fishman...takes us to the place where there is beauty in brokenness, where there is light in the dark, and where we can find intimacy in our honesty...From the first stunning choice to the last, I could not put this novel down." -- Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis, on Invisible as Air

"Fishman (Inheriting Edith, 2016) brings her signature style to a timely topic, illustrating the opioid epidemic in a realistic setting and allowing Sylvie's choices to speak for themselves...Invisible as Air takes readers on a raw and wild ride. Fans of Liane Moriarty and Jessica Levine especially should take note." -- Booklist (starred review)

"Her writing creeps up on you, like a crescent moon that seems to mysteriously switch sides in the night sky during a drive down a winding highway--taunting, unsettling, beautiful." -- Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Invisible as Air
