Praise for Waiting to Exhale

"Terry McMillan has created a well-written, truthful, and funny story of four African-American women...and the sometimes volatile world of Black female-Black male relationships."--Spike Lee

"The characters are so real, that you'll wonder if McMillan hasn't somehow overheard a private conversation. In the end, you'll cheer for Savannah, Bernadine, Gloria, and Robin. But the cheering starts for McMillan on the first page."--The Boston Globe

"Sharp, dynamic, and funny as hell."--New York Daily News

"McMillan is not only a gifted writer but a social critic as clear-eyed as Mark Twain or Zora Neale Hurston or Edith Wharton."--Newsday

"Waiting to Exhale's electric voices grab you and never let go...We root for characters so immediate they leap off the page; these women are cynical, self-deluding, furious--yet ever hopeful and relentlessly funny...Their struggles will resonate for anyone fighting to get her fair share of loving."--New Woman

"Terry McMillan has such a wonderful ear for story and dialogue. She gives us four women with raw, honest emotions that breathe off the page."--Amy Tan

"McMillan shines new light on contemporary African-Americans in bars, cafes, offices, and health clubs all over America who seldom show up so vividly in print."--San Francisco Chronicle

"Women, triumph, revenge, comradeship...a paean to the sisterhood of all women."--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Savannah, Bernadine, Robin, and Gloria are bright and aggressive, resilient and sassy...just bursting with life...Through it all, these four vibrant and durable women are there for one another."--The Washington Post Book World

"Captures what life and love are all about today."--USA Today
