Reviews

"By turns funny and poignant. . . . Conjures serious emotions with grace, humor and gravity." -San Francisco Chronicle

"Funny and tender . . . Nissen is a perceptive writer with a wry sensibility."-Chicago Tribune

"Light-hearted but not 'lite, ' sweet-natured but never sentimental." -TheBaltimore Sun

"A delightful novel . . . Aptly incorporates all of the sizzle, sorrow, and sporadic elation that a screwed-up family encounter. Nissen has spun an enticing story one wants to lap up whole." -The Boston Phoenix
