About the Author

Ann Hood is the author of eleven books, including the best-selling novels The Book That Matters Most and The Knitting Circle, and the memoirs Comfort: A Journey Through Grief and Kitchen Yarns: Notes on Life, Love, and Food. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island, and New York City.


A wondrously simple book about something complicated: the nearly unendurable process of enduring a great loss. The novel, like knitting, seems to make itself up as it goes along, the threads bound and gathered into a whole.--Carrie Brown
Acutely moving...The women's tragedies unfurl like skeins of yarn rolling down a slope.--Allison Lynn
A heartbreaker.--Elissa Schappel
Powerful and affecting.--John Marshal
One can only admire Hood for the effort she takes in this book to describe an insupportable grief...Undeniably real. The lesson--that being willing to share our stories, we learn how to live--cannot be dismissed.--Julie Wittes Schlack
Hood's words...pull you along, like a knitting pattern, one mesmerizing, settling click at a time, stitch by stitch, row by row, until you find yourself with something solid and real.--Peggy McMullen
This book is rich in sensory detail...This book shines a light on women helping each other and the world one stitch at a time.--Jan Marin Tramontano
