Praise

"Delightful. . . . [Lesser] makes it possible to find yourself, and your own relationships, in her raw anatomy of love between friends." —Los Angeles Times“The three intensely personal essays that make up this trenchant little volume display Lesser’s talent for brilliant, merciless self-criticism. She emerges as quirkily attractive and consistently interesting.” —The Atlantic Monthly"It is [Lesser’s] growing sense of doubt that expands and textures these essays as she reveals . . . the foiled expectations, unexpected discoveries and lively contradictions nested in her subjects." —San Francisco Chronicle“Erudite, discursive. . . . Her self-knowledge is acutely, fluidly, even beautifully rendered.” —The Washington Post“A sensitive, literate writer with smart and provocative things to say about art and life.” —Houston Chronicle
